Whitetail Fawn Came For Visit

July 15, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I had a Whitetail Fawn to come up to the cabin that I have near the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas. The Mom Doe and a yearling Doe were nearby but the Fawn was curious enough to come all the way up to the cabin. I was inside and I was able to open the door enough to stick my camera out to get a few photos.

I have several Deer that feed in my yard often. They show up between noon and 2:30 which is the hot part of the day. There is a pond nearby and I think they feed in my yard after getting a drink or it could be before getting a drink. This is the first Fawn that has shown up in the daylight. I have several trail cameras on my property and I knew I had several Fawns in the area. I have actually seen twin Fawns this year which is a good sign that the Deer seem to be healthy.

Whitetail Fawn Facts

  • Does usually remain within 100 yards of their fawns.
  • A 3-week-old fawn can outrun most danger.
  • Fawns begin eating vegetation at 2-3 weeks of age.
  • Fawns feed about four to six times each day.
