Here's the young doe. Range conditions are really good. She's in perfect shape. I bet she is a 2-4 year old.
Here's the older doe.
Look at those claw-marks healing.
The does aren't coming in together anymore. That means they have each selected their thicket to fawn in. Both are still in the immediate area, so I am trying to keep my presence at a minimum so they don't move/leave/relocate. I'd like to see these fawns.
Usually you can ID deer from notches/bites in their ears. These does are pretty clean except for the claw marks.
Both still pregnant, but due date has gotta be close.
Notice the now-healing cuts on the side of this doe. It was really close. Those are circular claw-cut marks. She ran out of the embrace of a cougar. Hope it didn't hurt the fawn.
The younger doe was at the cam at 2:02 this afternoon. I was at the cam at 2:25. Her tracks were still smoking.
