I'm getting a lot more pictures now that I figured out I was setting the camera in a place where there was too little area to catch anything passing.  They would pass close in and trip the shot but be out of the frame when it went off. 

I picked up one card today after being out a week.  It had 130 some pictures,  over half having something on them.

 

 

This is the best of the four bucks that came by.

Now you're cooking. My stepson has many pictures of deer. None with a rack like that.

I won't burden the forum with a picture but I got a good picture of a large fawn that still had spots.  I'd think it would be late in the year for spots. And the fawn was really big.

Burden away. PLEASE Someone don't like it,they don't have to look.  ;D I've been seeing a real small deer on my land. Hope it gets some food before snow comes. That might the little &@#$( that has been jumping the electric fence for the garden.

Not unusual around here to see spots on fawns through September. If cam picks up another one, I'll save it and post it.

I also want to see the black bear on this one.  ;D

Nobody said I couldn't upload a picture.  I just figured everybody has seen a fawn with spots.

 

 

I think last year's fawns breed in mid winter and give birth later in summer.  But this one looks fairly big.

Nice picture of the spots. I can't really tell,but the one I'm seeing on my land looks smaller and no spots.

Within the last few days I saw a fawn with spots on it here at my sawmill yard. Was pretty small.

USFWS got this one with a game camera in the Santa Rita Mtns, just south of Tucson.

Well,  I've not got pictures of my bear on the trail cam yet.  But they had a young male male bear in downtown yesterday.

I think he's more hungry than lustful. Looks thin.

My daugter lives in Marshfeild Mo and told me last weekend that a bear had been seen in town by her office.  She thought it might be an escapee from somewhere.

I suspect they learn quickly to dig into trash cans.

IMO that's a yearling in the picture in the paper in Bibby's post (Reply #131).  Cub bears are usually born in January and den with their mothers the second winter.  Then mom is ready to find a male to breed with and they make it clear to the cubs that they need to leave home.  The yearling males are the ones that usually wander around causing trouble, sort of like a teenager that gets kicked of the the house. The female cubs share a portion of the mother's territory, while the males are on their own to find a new territory.  The mature females breed every other year, generally in March (late) and April. It depends some what on the geographic location.
