Those coastal deer rut very early. So it is not unusual at all to see fawns this early in the year.

Very nice! Last year ours were dropping end of march to end of August... We had several extremely late, good to see early drops.

Earliest I ever saw a fawn in northern Kendall County was April 5th. I would also see fawns on that same ranch every year the last week of April every year though. Rut was always in full tilt in mid October in that area. There was an area of 3 counties were they met that had the same early rut times. I was early by about a month compared to the rest of those counties.

Yalls rut must start in October

Sept is common in that area of the OP. You can get into August in some instances for rut with the Avery Island whitetails along the coast.

I'm 260 miles north of where these pics were taken. Our fawns typically start dropping in late April and May and some as late as mid June.

TPWD did a fetus study back in the '90s and mapped out rut data all over the state from the results. I still have that map and it is probably the most accurate data source available on the subject. I'm sure you are familiar with it.
