When Are Fawns Born?
Posted on March 24 2020
Since natural resources were scarce in winter, white-tailed deer and other animals know that the changing season brings them an abundance of flowers, fruits and vegetables; and they are taking full advantage. Spring is when homeowners start to see an influx of wildlife on properties; and it causes headaches for home gardeners. But, the headache is only the beginning...
In late March early April, homeowners will see adorable fawns on their yards left by their mothers. Doe will leave their young in a safe nearby location (near trees or bushes) where they will go unseen by predatory animals as they scout for food. Homeowners are advised not to approach newborn fawns. While doe deer typically do not attack humans, they will do so if they feel their young are in danger.
To protect home gardens from double-trouble browsing, home growers will need to install a 7.5 to 8' foot high deer fence system. The increase in wildlife on yards will not slow down for several seasons.
