I decided to do a little more research on this, rather than simply spout off baised on my personal observations.
Let's use Charley Alsheimer's 2007 rut predictions as our starting point. He thought the peak breeding period, in the North, should take place between Nov. 4-10, 2007. Let's assume a doe was breed on Nov. 10.
The gestation period for a whiteail deer is 200 days. So the fawn would have dropped on May 28, 2008.
If a healthy fawn looses it's spots at 90-120 days old, then the spots could remain as late as Sept. 25, 2008.
Given this info., my inital post about the herd being overpoulated and out of balance, was incorrect.
So not only do I have egg on my face, but my head hurts from all that math.
