    Deer trumps Deere

    Well I guess I'm not working on the fire pit today.

    This Deer decided to derail that particular project I was going to use the Deere for.

    So cute! I've been known to leave areas of pastures un-mowed, because I saw a fawn bedded down, or you could see where one beds regularly.

    Momma thought is was a good place to for the little one, so who am I to mess things up? Glad you left it there, and thanks for sharing the photo too!

    We get them in our meadow as well. This one was May of last year and was no bigger than a dinner plate. The next day we went out there to check on her and you could clearly see her and her mother's impressions in the grass where they slept overnight.

    Mom must have come and gotten him or her last night. The baby deer was gone this morning with no signs of any violence by predators.

    I'm wondering if it was left there with Mom thinking it was safe as last year and the year before I left a couple acres mostly un-mowed to encourage wildlife, though not exactly in the particular area of my fire pit. This year due to late end of winter, lots of rain and waiting for the new tractor before mowing the first time I mowed all of it later than I would normally have done. The last two years there would have been nice tall grass/meadow/field that I know deer bedded in that was this year recently cut. Maybe Mom was remembering last year or when she was born. Oh well, in the Fall the Deer will have that area for bedding and foaling again.

    We spoke to the DNR about ours just to make sure we shouldn't do anything. They said that frequently the mother will do this with a newborn (only a couple days old) where they'll get them down some place they believe is safe so that they can go graze. DNR advised just to leave it alone and it worked out fine here as well.

    Found this little guy when I was mowing last year, just across the fence from the picnic ground:
