It is kind of strange to still be seeing so many small spotted fawns this season, Normally I see a couple but this year I'm seeing a bunch myself, I took this pic Sat Sept.4, 2010
Breeding occurs between Late Oct. to early Dec. Whitetail deer have a gestation period of approx. 6-1/2 months (about 200 days)
giving birth somewhere between late May or early July

we had a funny experience in early summer with what I thought was a late birthing of a fawn. My neighbor called me to come over with my camera because she had just watched a doe drop her fawn right in her back yard. I ran over just in time to see only the doe without her fawn run into the woods. My neighbor said she fawn followed her into the woods but I didn't see her, she must of bedded her down quick for safety from me. The next morning around 7 am we put or golden retreiver on her leash in the yard. Soon we saw the mamma doe at the edge of our yard watching our dog. I told my husband that was the deer that had her baby in the neighbors yard the evening before, she had some distinct scarring on her side so I knew it was her. That poor deer must of misplaced her baby, she was a very young mother, she stood at the perimeter of our yard until 9 p.m. when the rain started and we brought our dog in the house. We thought that she may of thought the dog was her fawn, same color and size, but she wouldn't get any closer than about 40 or 50 yards. Our dog is so used to deer trapsing past her that she will lay in the yard when they walk 10 feet away from her. Then 2 days later, she showed up with 2 kids trailing behind her. They are a regular fixture in our yard, among others, and I am quite certain they were very late season fawns.
