Something on the other end of this soybean field got this Whitetail Doe jumping and running toward my end of the field. This is at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. You can count on seeing a few deer in this field early in the mornings. It is located next to the road that goes to the Baker parking area at south Sally Jones. One Doe seems to stay in the field eating soybean leaves until about 8:00 a.m. (Whitetail Doe Eating Soybean Leaves).
The soybeans are growing fast and come up to the belly of the deer. The plants will soon be head high in this field with a few more good rains which are in the forecast. This will make it difficult to see and photograph these Whitetail Deer.
The one Doe that I have been watching appears to be nursing a fawn, but has not brought it into the field. I was hoping to see it before the soybean got this high.
