Life of the Whitetail Deer in the Springtime and Early Summer
The pictures below are of newborn whitetail deer fawns. This is what springtime is all about for the whitetail deer. New life comes into their world...
Please remember while in the fields and woods this time of year to be careful not to spook the does in the area. May and June are the time they will be giving birth and to me it is important to give them space to do so.
Should you find a fawn PLEASE LEAVE IT WHERE IT IS. It is not abandoned by its mother. The mother is out feeding and left her fawn or fawns in what she considers a safe place. Just back away from them and please do not try to touch them. The less human scent you leave the better. Hey who knows the fawn could grow up to look like the Whitetail Deer Buck in the picture below.
Hunting white tail deer is one of the most popular sports in the country. You can hunt them with bow and arrows, rifles, hand guns and cameras. They are hunted for food and for the challenge of obtaining a trophy rack, or maybe just a great photo.
Hunters who read about world record whitetail deer try and put themselves in the place of the hunter. The thrill of bringing down a giant buck, one with an impressive rack, is something every white tail deer hunter dreams of.
From Birth to the Great Hunt
Learning about the behavior of white-tail deer begins with a good understanding of how whitetail fawns grow into yearlings and then adults. Does and bucks behave differently of course. A whitetail deer doe will birth up to 3 fawns but most of the time they birth 2 or 1. Later in the summer they may then join a group of other does and fawns.
Whitetail bucks roam freely or in bachelor groups but later in the fall the larger more dominate bucks will roam alone, but they do have specific habits that you need to know about in order to have a successful hunt.
