Bib, now you can just kick the saw dust to flush the deer. ;D

I think we have one doe left around here out of the usual 3. One got ran over last fall and one got ate this summer I think. Never been in the carrots yet anyway. :D
Move'n on.

I used to have a big mongrel dog who was a tough girl. I let her out one day for a pee break and as she came back toward the house she turned and went into some thick cover. Within seconds I heard her yelp and she came out and back to the house with an irate doe hot on her heels that chased her all the way up by the garage before going back to her fawn. After that the deer could come in the yard and the dog made no attempt to bother them. I'll bet some does are kicking some of the coyotes as well. The dog was limping for a couple of days.

My sister and i witnessed a big doe running off a coyote. Not likely to run off a wolf or bear or cougar.

   I see three fawns in my pasture almost daily. I think they are twins and a single and sometimes one mom has all 3 babysitting them. The old one might be the twins mom and grandmother of the single. At times you will see all 3 nursing from the same doe. The fawns all look big this year and and I am seeing very small does walking around with large fawns. Not sure if it is the mom or just a big sister babysitting them.

 After dark I took 2 watermelon rinds up and tossed out by the gate for the horse and mule. I got up this morning and spotted a big white spot below the gate and thought maybe it was a big mushroom that had sprouted overnight. I walked up to check and found the deer found the rinds before the horse and mule and had eaten all the red out and pushed the rind under the fence and down the hill. One rind had even been pushed against the yard fence about 10' from where Sampson was sleeping in his doghouse. I don't think he even barks at them.

Almost as bad as my wife's dog pumpkin. I was on the tractor and she was with me. She ran up to deer deer barking and they just stood there. Pumpkin did not know what to do,so she came back to me.  :D

cfarm,

  At least your wife's dog tries to chase them. It isn't her fault they won't cooperate.

Nice picture of the critters!!
I probably saw just about the same size "fawns" when we went for a ride. I suppose we saw MaMa first.Looked like she had twins.
