Found a fawn that had died today right beside the house. The fawn couldnt have been more than a week old. Ddidnt weight but maybe 10-12 pounds. I know its most likely from a yearly last years being bred late but still a surprise. Also have another fawn that maybe is a month old only, still spots and very small. Just wonder how common this is?

I've seen two in the past month that were tiny, here's my thoughts. I wonder if some of the Does aborted during the freeze and came back in after. I know my bucks here carry their antlers into March. If that happened, they should have been born August-early September for this area.

Another thing is my fawn crop is way down and it should have been a good year with the spring rains and good cover.

I've seen it often in Webb county.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

Saw one yesterday morning in Lee county, probably a month old.

I think the weather we have been getting has everything messed up. At my spot we still have fawns with spot and some that spot are faded, along with completely gone. It is crazy.


If I'm not hunting something I must be dead.

Same here, had a fawn with spots on camera last week. Sure seems awfully late for that.

Probably early born doe fawns from last year that bred and had fawns.

Yes, this happens way more than people realize.
