I've found two fawns laying down like that in my life. One I have a picture of from back in the old days when we used film. I have a digital one of the other somewhere....

I'm always afraid that I'll hit one during my first cutting. I have never done it but I know several farmers that have. :(

Bibby, if that deer is 30 inches tall, maybe it's not a Whitetail, maybe it's an Axis deer.

I got this picture on the trail cam last late September.  It well may be an exotic.   We don't have any kind of deer farms nearby but we've had a lot of things stranger than this roaming around.

One of the benefits of being in the bush regularly during this time of year is getting the opportunity to see young wildlife.  Thanks for posting the pictures.

Beenthere, yup those are mule deer.
I saw a fresh fawn this morning out fencing, but for once didn't have the camera in my pocket. I will tomorrow though. ;D

I saw a video at Facebook today. A fawn was stuck between balusters around a porch. A woman tried to push it's butt through but it's pelvis wouldn't makes the squeeze. She went outside and tried to lift the front half. The fawn cried like a baby but she lifted it and pushed it backwards through the railing. Happy ending.

I pulled one out of a fence similar to that a few years ago on the Naval base. He screamed and kicked a little bit, too, but I got him out.

I wonder if this large bear was looking for this fawn as photo was taken on the same morning in the same location.

I scared up a "baby" fawn last week while bushhogging.  I say baby because I first thought that it was a swamp rabbit.

Going out this morning there were twin fawns right next to the drive pulling new shoots off a white oak.  Mom was about 30 feet away browsing on brush.  When we got close the fawns scampered off into the woods.  Mom just kept on browsing and didn't even look at us. :)

A couple of weeks back the neighbors delivered some logs.  We were visiting when a fawn came bounding out of the woods,  across the mown lawn, leaping and dodging almost up to us.  Then it veered off and continued on up behind the log piles for a hundred yards and then back into the woods.   We watched for a doe to follow it or something chasing it but nothing followed.   Today Mary was mowing in the same area this morning when a fawn came up out of a rough area around a power pole.  She said it came towards her at first.

Years ago there was a block of salt sitting on that stump. Neighbor had cattle here, and it leached down through and has been a salt lick ever since.
