Let me just throw another angle at this, by telling you about Madge. Back in 2004, I blew away the lead doe out of a group of about 5. The next in line was a young doe that just could not get it through her head that Big Momma had taken a dirt nap. My son and I got down from the stand and chased her away. The next year, a somewhat wary doe watched as my son borrowed my muzzleloader to ace a button buck from the same stand.
From that point on, we had trouble. We called her Madge. Madge would arrive well ahead of the rest of the doe in her group, scrutinize our stand and go to great lengths to stamp and snort from the safety of a large bush as a warning to the others. The rest of her crew usually paid no attention to her and would just go on eating acorns. We were not able to take another deer from that stand until 2009, the first year Madge didn't show up for the Youth Opener.
I suspect that Madge was the #2 deer in 2004. I think she was the momma deer in 2005 that watched us kill her son. From then on we had a crazy deer on a mission. Some times she would come by our other stands too. You knew Madge, because she just would not let up. Sometimes she'd take a post somewhere close by and safe and make racket for half an hour. She definitely knew what was going on
My point is this: If you shoot either one of a doe-fawn pair, be ready for future trouble. If either survives, that one is surely going to know what's going on.
In a similar vein, I can't wait to see what happens with the little doe that kept coming by my stand last year. In one instance I could swear she deliberately led a nice buck past my stand to get him off her tail. In another, after I had bagged a big buck , she came over and examined the carcass and then went over and bedded next to my stand and the pile of gear I had left while I tended to the buck out in the field.
