7/22/2012: Two Fawns

Posted August 23rd, 2012 at 05:53 PM by Skewerer

After seeing all of the pictures of velvet-antlered bucks posted to the BayouBucks forum, I finally couldn't take it anymore. I had to take a break and hit the woods to set some "cam traps."

Sunday after church, my wife and I headed to the woods with a few cameras ready to be hung. After arriving and transferring gear into the Bad Boy, we took off en route to the first planned trail camera set.

When rounding the bend on the gravel road, I caught a glimpse of movement on the edge of an overgrown pipeline. Two fawns bounced out into the opening and stopped in some thick grass. I did not see them leave the patch of brush, so I told my wife to wait in the Bad Boy while I tried to sneak closer for a better look.

As I approached to within yards of the grass patch, the fawns scattered like cottontails. One bounded out to about 100 yards away before stopping, looking back, and then retreating to the big timber.

The other fawn trotted up onto the gravel road and stared me down from only 15 yards away. It looked like he had fresh scars to his face and side--evidence of a serious run-in with a coyote.

After sizing me up, the little guy decided it was time to head back to mama. He bounced back toward the same general area I had seen him when we first rounded the bend and disappeared into the woods.
