Another little deer has been coming up to our back door. After every hunting season, it seems there is a motherless baby deer left behind. Often the fawns are born late in the season, and are still very small come February.
This little guy has been hanging out in our back yard right outside our back door. If we go out back he runs away, but seems to return to the area soon.
This morning at sunrise he was out there, but now at 10:30 AM he is off hiding somewhere.
Last year's Little Deer joined a herd of does and other young fawns. I'm sure this little guy will join up with some others soon, too.
I feel like the surrogate mom for lost deer children. Wish they were more friendly! I'm heading out back to put out some cut up apple pieces for him.
