First Fawn 08

7 posts in this topic

Well, while out checking for Morels, I happened upon my first fawn of the year... cool

I thought it was too early, and saw it trailing around licking wet grass, and thought it might be small Coyote, so after waiting for it to bed down again, I walked up on it and almost stepped on it, whereupon it let out a loud "MOMM " bleat, and took off a stumblin' over to a new resting spot...

It so happens the new spot, was down around the corner of a rise, and right on the path of my circuit, so after waiting again, I walked right on by and said Howdy, and went on my way... whistle

I hope to watch this one grow, and come visit my yard with Momma...if it did'nt get the Coyotes in the Den 100 yards over, a salivatin' too much... eek

Anyone else seeing any yet???

I almost stepped on one last weekend, it played dead but I could hear it breathing hard. Pics are up on Roch-Winona-SE forum under "good day in houston county"

Saw 2 super young ones on Saturday, turkey hunting. Jumped a doe just as we sat down, 10 minutes later a little fawn somehow gets on its feet 20 yards away. It had a twin lying on the ground. We got up and were gonna head out of the area, and here he comes with a big "are you my momma??" look on his face as he stumbles over to us. Probably would have nuzzled me if I had let him. Very cute!

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
