Fawns are showing up regularly around our house these days.  While horseback riding yesterday I saw my first pair of fawns with a doe.  We've seen lots of single fawns with does.  While does mostly always birth twin fawns, in dry or stressful times usually only one fawn lives.  The state of Texas has been dry this year and thus our fawn crop is not as good as last year when we experienced good rainfall. 

Whitetail bucks currently have horns are sprouting on their heads.  Nutrition is very important for horn growth and we are thankful to have a good mesquite bean crop this year.  The beans are full of good protein and will be of great benefit for our deer herds.
