I came close to stepping on one out in our hayfield on wednesday. I'm glad I spooked it off. We mowed that morning and the sickle bar would have done it in. I've been seeing one or two fawns every day for the past month. (Or maybe I see the same fawn twice a day every day...who knows.) Deer are starting to filter back into my place after the creekside clearing and dredging that the county did in November.
