Default Went target shooting and guess what?

Was under our rifle muzzles? We had to quit after shooting about 75 rounds. One was 15 yds. in front of our muzzles and the other one was about 2 yards on the other side of my car which was 6 yards from the shooting bench. They thought we were their mother who went crazy when they called her.

We quit shooting and packed up and went home when we realized what had happened. Hope mama will take care of them. They could hardly walk. Maybe 1 or 2 days old.

Default Fawns

That is truly amazing. Count yourself blessed to experience such an encounter with nature at the earliest beginnings of life. New-born fawns are spectacular. Great pictures. Thanks for sharing with all of us.

I'm betting they're either deaf now or grow up to be extremely wary of the sound of gunshots.

Fawns are among some of the cutest little critters around, but folks, please, stop petting them when you find them in the wild. Many times the doe will NOT take them back under her wing once you have left human scent on them or even in the area right around them, particularly when they are that young. And don't assume their mother has been killed because you don't see her around. Does will leave the fawns except to return a couple times to nurse them when they are still too young to follow her. They aren't orphans 99% of the time...the doe has simply left them so she doesn't draw a preditor to them. She will return to nurse them at intervals.
Look at them from a distance, take a picture if you like, but then back off and leave them be.

Yep, you may have signed the death warrant. Please don't handle these critters. So many folks take them home mistakingly thinking they have been abandoned.
