Ron if it helps any, it may return.  I "stole" one once after I'd walked by it several times not realizing it was there then about the third time by I had to take a leak and when I looked up I was looking right into it, I'd parked my truck right next to it (on our land) and was fixing fence and cutting trees.  I found out who's it was and gave it back, they had permission to hunt there, actually he used to be our game warden, but luckily after checking the pictures I hadn't exposed myself to anyone but mother nature  :D although it took my picture every other time I walked by it  ???.

I think game cameras in Maine need a name on it.

   I was coming home around noon yesterday when a fawn that looked to weigh 20-25 lbs suddenly bounced out of the thick brush by the road along the banks of the Greenbrier River just outside of town. I slammed on the brakes then she hit the pavement and slipped as they often do. It slid to the yellow center line then got up and ran across someone's lawn. That is the closest I have come to hitting one in many years. Don't know what spooked it out of the brush. I did not see the old doe come out first or other deer in the area.

   Had to go to Lewisburg WV (Barnyard Builders home) this morning and just outside of town by the Greenbrier East Middle school is a big corn field. Two fawns ran out of the corn and stopped in the center of the road. I had plenty of lead time and sat down on the horn encouraging them to leave. They hopped the rundown wire fence and across and old pasture. Glad they were okay. A lot of them are getting killed this time of year.

Almost got one with my car tonight on the way back through Maryland, I think it would have ended poorly for it and my little car.

I had four sets of twins on my little place this year.  They each claim there own little patch of ground as the home territory.  I worry about one set as there claim is close to the road.

This pair can normally be found between the house and the lake.  I ride a stationary bike on the deck twice a day and see them most of the time.  Sometimes I talk to them, but they never have talked back....yet.



They were browsing about 30' from the deck while I was riding the bike so when I got done I walked over and took there picture.  They are not camera shy at all.

The spots are fading rapidly on all four sets now.  Won't be long.

   The kissing mama picture reminded me of a fawn we raised 15-16 years ago. Mother got killed by a car and we raised her on goat milk. Old goat would not nurse her like she would an orphan kid goat so we'd milk her and give it to her in a bottle. She was always free to run around our place and would go play with the wild deer in the area. We got lots of great pictures when kids would come by. Wife would call and Spot would come running out of the weeds. We'd let the kids give her a bottle or a treat - she loved fortune cookies and liked apples. Anyway. the kids could kneel down or bend over and Spot would come lick their face and looked like she was kissing them. I guess she was licking the salt off their face but the kids never knew. it was always a big hit with the moms too.

 Spot's best friend was our big yellow tom cat Morris. We'd feed her bottle and she'd get milk all over her face and Morris, who was the about same size when we first got her, would lick it off. it was also funny when they got older to see Spot in the pasture browsing around and Morris would start stalking her like a leopard after an antelope. He get in range and charge her with feet spread, she'd kick a hoof past his ear and they'd run a couple circles, stop and sniff noses then go their own way. They both seemed to enjoy the game.

This one is either nursing or didn't get stopped in time.
