Seeing any fawns yet???

Anyone seeing any fawns yet???

We should be close. It's always exciting to see them when they first start venturing out. Figured some would be showing up on trail camera before the rest see them in our yards.

Grandpa always said when I cut first crop hay there's fawns, sometimes in the mower unfortunately as tight as they hold and lay. What I have seen are some does that seem to be searching around for a quiet out of the way spot to have them. As early as a few farmers reported seeing breeding of does they could come a bit sooner then later. PS. Time is right now to kill every coyote you can.

I got pictures of some newborns last year and it was the 17th of May.  Should be seeing some in the next week or so.

My father in law saw his first fawn in Siren, Wi in early May. I did the 200 day gestation count back and the calculations said doe would have been bred on Oct 22nd. This would shoot holes in the early- mid November breeding theory. Was this just an isolated incident or are rut/ breeding times way off base?

I've seen a few running with moms and two flat ones on the road! :(

Not a single fawn on cam as of 2 weeks ago. 

Got a chocolate bear, a timberwolf(pic confirmed by the International wolf center in Ely) and coyotes. Lots of fawn eaters on the farm in OTC.

fawns that survive are lucky SOBs now days. Continued sad state of affairs with the deer in our area.

Lots of fawns and deer in general for us.  Have some bears on camera.   No yotes or wolves yet.  I trapped a bunch of yotes last winter.  It appears as though that has helped.

You did something about your predator problem instead of just complaining about it???? What a concept!

You can call in and shoot yotes in the summer too.  Set up on a newly cut hay field and give the critter call a rip.  You might be surprised how fast  a yote may appear.

I cant shoot a wolf. Cant shoot a bear out of season. Neighbor shot/trapped 15 coyotes this past winter. My apologies that I cant cant camp out on the hunting land and kill more coyotes. Come on down and shoot em. I have offered it up to many, but nobody seems to want to do it after the big talk comes out. Plenty of things in life that dont allow unlimited time to go take care of predators in my life when I live 125 miles away.

Since our legislators and elected officials won't or can't help us out, it's our job as sportsmen to help out the deer population and control the predator population. We all know the predation problems on the land, it's ok to do some maintenance to keep every thing in check. We will have zero deer if we leave it up to our Govt.

Deer are thick as thieves around my place. There are two does with three fawns you can see in my backyard right in the middle of the day. Garden thieves I call them.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
