We got 9"" I've rain last weekend at our lease. It flooded as well. I was wondering how fawns react to high water or do their moms guide them from hazards?

If it's moving, they can pretty easily drown. The Memorial Day flood wiped out a lot of our fawn crop last year.

Depends on how old they are and how they interpret the rain event. If they see a predator such as a coyote, they will likely lay still till it passes. But what about something like fire ants? If fire ants are biting them do they interpret it as a need to lay still or do they move? I would assume if the rain event was a slow soaker they would move. If it comes fast and hard, they may not have much of a chance. Same issue for bobwhite quail and turkey.

No idea really I would assume mommas move some and its probably not like a dam broke and a 6-foot wall of water hits them, as the water level rises I'm sure they start to move.

I have also seen a spotted fawn clear a 4-foot tall fence like it wasn't there, they are wild animals and have natural instincts to take care of them.

Speaking from experience they can be pretty stupid about haycutters,
