Most mornings we'll have deer come to the corn feeder that we have in the edge of the woods. Lately we have mostly pregnant does, and one of them is absolutely huge. I've never seen one that big. Pretty sure she had twins last year, since she's constantly followed by two small doe, but the wife and I don't remember ever seeing a doe this swollen. Any of ya'll ever see a doe with triplets?

According to here... https://www.qdma.com/common-triplet-fawns/ triplets could be a sign that you have a healthy deer population. Sounds like you may be doing things right.

I have seen triplets twice, both on the same ranch, and I suspect by the same doe. Make sure when she drops them she gets access to all the protein she can handle and hopefully all 3 will survive.

We had a set of triplets out of a mule deer doe and another set of triplets out of a whitetail doe last year.

Think about how good the mast crop was last year, all across the state. We ran three feeders last fall, and probably 80% of the corn just piled up under the feeder and rotted, because the deer didn't need it, there were so many acorns. I shot a spike in January, and his stomach contents were nuttier than squirrel sh!t. All those calories in the fall translate to more fawns in the spring.

This was from a few years ago. Just outside our kitchen window. Mom was so exhausted that she could hardly walk.
