A lot depends on where your herd backgrounds are from.

Just had this conversation over the weekend. We are close - lots of very pregnant does. I guess in the next two weeks we'll start seeing fawns at my place.

Since our rut here is in September, we have fawns right now. There was one right outside my wife's office window last week in the middle of a kid's soccer field. After awhile, mom came back around and herded it back into the woods.

As the gestation period for a whitetail is 200 days and our rut in Dickens county is around Thanksgiving looking to see fawns the end of this month. If we don't get adequate rain they will abort or abandon their babies due to a lack of milk. We got an 3/4 of an inch at my place last week so I'm praying it will be enough to support them.

The doe I saw past weekend in Montague still pregs. Should start dropping thru mid June. It's lush so should be a good survival year.
