    What's the earliest fawn y'all have seen? Found one Sunday in Cumberland county while cutting wood.

    I've seen fawn hoof prints in late April turkey hunting.

    Last on trail cam I'd guess most looked like first of June on my place. I was thinking the fawn wasn't but a couple days old so I back dated it and it put breeding at Oct 15th

    If you back dated from June 1st 2017, the doe would have been bred around November 13th 2016. That's going by the 200 days gestation period for whitetails.

    Sorry, I back dated from may 5th this year and it was around Oct 15th. I thought that was an awful early fawn this year. Last year seemed normal

    Been a few years like 2012 or 13 but saw one opening day of turkey season then the next weekend my dad saw two twin fawns. It’s not that uncommon. Saw a lot does this year but didn’t notice any fawns.

    I saw one walking with its mom the second week of turkey season 3-4 years ago. It was tiny. I videoed with my phone, but it was too far to really be able to see anything.

    I saw one while I was turkey hunting several years ago. Most around here are mid May- first week of June.

    My dad seen one while Bush hogging today. He said it was really small and couldnt move around very good, so prob not over a couple days. He felt bad about jumping it and since he wasnt in no real big hurry to get the fields bush hogged he decided to quit mowing and wait a few more weeks in case there was any more. I know it's not early but it seems like we usually don't see them until almost the end of the month or early june.
