I just about stepped on one the other day. I was planting some CRP acres and was walking along a creek to get to the pickup to fill up with seed and came across a little guy, he couldn't have been a day old. I took a couple pictures with my camera phone, but I cant get them off my phone.

Andy and I had to cut a newborn fawn out of a field fence on Saturday. We saw him once while doing some bush hogging, then while Andy was cutting a path down one end of the field, I could hear him call for his mamma. Andy came back across the field for another swipe, then as the tractor disappeared again, I heard a fawn "screaming" something awful. My fear was Andy had hit him with the tractor while cutting the weeds that were almost 3 feet high. I followed the sound and saw that the little guy had tried to jump through a field fence (you know-the kind that has the 5 or 6 inch square opening) the fawns hips joints were caught in the fence. By the time I got to him, I thought he was dead, or at least broke his legs. As much as I hated to touch him (mamma's will normally leave their young if human scent is on them) I put my gloves on and saw that he was still alive. I motioned for Andy and he got the wire cutters and we cut the little guy (yes it was a baby boy) out of the fence. He just laid there for a minute, then got up and took off like a bat out of hell. I am hoping that he found his mamma, but never saw him again. There was no evidence that his legs were hurt
I guessed by the size of him, he was 2 or 3 days old, still have the stump from the umblical cord attached.

Haven't seen any up here yet this year but I'm sure they are around. Got to go check one of my camera some point this week so we'll see if I have any on there.
