Update on Fawns & Spring/Summer Mowing at Oakridge

BabyFawn_LPetter_June2015

The picture above was taken by Linda Petter of a new fawn found by Larry in their yard here at Oakridge.   As noted below does often leave their fawns for several hours in tall grass while they go find food.  Please check your grass over prior to mowing to ensure there are none hidden in your grass.   You might also think about not mowing a couple of areas in order to provide places for the does to hide their young.   We are still having new fawns born here at the Ranch, some as late as August.

Our does have begun dropping their fawns as seen in the picture above.   Take care when mowing around your place.   A doe will leave her fawns in tall grasses while she feeds.   A fawn has no scent for the first few days of its life, giving the it time to get stronger.  Thanks, J.D., for the nice picture!

Live life outdoors!

  1. Correction- this picture was not taken by Linda. This photo is Willliam Carr with the discovery of a new born fawn. William & Mary Carr own property on Miller Loop.
