    Last night saw the first fawn, little one was not even dry yet. The doe was bred last October 13th. This is the earliest fawn I have seen in 25 years living here IMG_1010.jpg

    Right on! Got my first trail cam pic of a fawn on 5/20 which seemed pretty early for around here.

    Cool pic! Maybe you should hunt more than one weekend a year if they are breeding that early.

    That's awesome! I have heard of people around me seeing fawns already but I have not seen one yet.

    I saw one a week ago, pretty small but ran behind the doe when I jumped them just fine. The doe had to have been last years fawn, it wasn't much bigger than the spotted one following it.
    Had to have been bred pretty early, I see the majority of fawns in late June and early July, and have seen fawns still with spots clear into the first week of September.
