    Cool. Using a 200-day gestation period, the doe would have been bred around October 20th last.

    interesting, my dad had some hens infront of him the other day, then 3 deer came out the bush to say hi and they didnt even bat an eye at them, maybe its a tom thing?

    Nice to see this kind of thing. Spring fawn! Fun part of Turkey hunting - you get to see the whole world wake up around you. I had a bobolink land on my boot one year. His song sounded like the bleeps and bloops from R2D2 in Star Wars. I guess my camo worked. He must have thought I was a rock.

    I think you'll find that it's actually October 25th, if you were to use the approximate 200-day gestation period. Unfortunately it's difficult to determine gestation in wild deer, only approximate.
    We do know the seasons play a big role in gestation and arguably we're at least a week ahead judging by the greenery and that being the important nutrient for doe's to lactate.
    I could still see the possibility of a November breeding instead of October.
    It's always been a great topic for debate.

    You're only as good as your first shot of the day. Know your limitations and make it count.
