    I was sitting at home yesterday evening when the wife told me to come look at the deer. Now seeing deer at my house is pretty common but this wasn't. There was 1 doe with 4 fawns. My first thought was they can't be all hers but I never seen another deer enter the field in the 2 hours they were there. And all the fawns were the same size with spots. Who knows, Hers not all hers. Sure was good to see though.

    That is not uncommon here in KY if we have had a good year crop wise. Usually it is limited to two to three but four is not that uncommon. A does first year she will usually have only one and progress from there on.


    Four is the most I have seen with a doe though. I have not heard of any more than four fawns per doe.
