We’ve been monitoring this White-Tailed Deer fawn and four others since they appeared on and near our property in the Spring.

The fawns still travel with their mothers, and we’re apparently within their ranges. The summer home ranges of Maine White-Tails are small: usually 500-to-600 acres (0.78-to-0.93 square miles), according to state data.

When we started monitoring the local fawns in the Spring, there were three singles and a set of twins. Four of the five are doing well, which is a high survival rate. One of the singles was taken by a coyote, judging by what we found in June. (Don’t ask.)


These three images were taken September 25, 2017.
