Thumbs up Vermont doe and fawn sighting

Me and the family visited Vermont this weekend and stayed at Sterling Ridge Resort in the Stowe area. My daughter was competing in a soccer tournament in nearby Burlington. On the way out of the resort Saturday morning we happened to see a doe. She looked a little nervous but did not run away immediatly. Thirty seconds or so later we saw a fawn get up and proceed to bounce away. I have two daughters 13 and 11 who were absolutely thrilled to see this sight!

Sounds like you all had a great time. Those fawns are cool to see especially when they're still real small but yet very fast.

just a word of warning .should you find a fawn leave it alone ,its very rare that they are abandoned,mom is usually nearby.leave it be if you mess with it mom may then abandon it

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

It was with the mom and we did stay a good distance from them both. Even though the kids wanted a better look I did not want to stress the animals out.
