Fawn

Fri, June 21, 2013

Last night was the third time I had spooked this little fawn from behind my house. I’ve jumped it twice with the tractor while mowing and once while filling the bird feeders. He or she likes to hunker down in a small food plot I have planted not far from my back door and literally feet away from where my yellow lab likes to stand by the gate in my fence. I think now I know now what he has been barking at. Last night Sandy and I were able to sneak in close enough to snap a picture. I hope it hangs around so I can get more photos of it.

Beautiful picture Jim.
I had to save it to my phone. Hope you don’t mind?

I had to mow a 10 acre clover field last wk and somehow didn’t hit any fawns, although one got up under my moving tractor’s bucket with about a 1/2 second to spare. One Doe came out and got a set of twins up and into the timber in time. They are so hard to see in 3’ tall grass.

Same by my Tim.  Cut about 20 acres of hay late last week no fawns were killed.  Jumped 5 does, so I’m guessing they got their fawns out of the way in time.  I thought for sure we’d have some dead ones with the hay 4 feet tall.  We did find two hatched turkey nests and two unhatched eggs in another area.  Oh, and a rooster pheasant.
