   Great shot. I love to find them. The does drop them inside my pasture on a slope above my old goat barn and I look for and find them every year (Not every trip - sometimes have to look 2-3 times a week before I find them). They should start being born any day here. Ours are mostly born in May & June.

A few years ago I was walking along fixing fence in a pasture we rent when I happened to step on one a little bigger than that, he was bedded down in tall grass right along side some plum thickets.  Judging by the squeal it let out and the squeal I let out I'm still not sure who was more terrified  :D.  Took me a bit to collect all the staples I lost from my bucket then got past the thickets and saw momma anxiously waiting for it, she was just beyond them, no harm was done but I may have survived a mild heart attack  ::).

Used to walk up on them in the woods once in a while.  One so curious he stuck around till I was almost in arms distance.  I must have (probably) smelled bad, cause he took off.

If they're really young and you get close enough before they notice you, they will drop "flat on the ground".

Just something their mom has taught them!
