My spring food plot is getting greener. However the peas are not showing yet. The mix of seed we used has a variety of seeds and what’s growing is some kind of grain that is currently only about 3 inches high. You wouldn’t think that any deer would be interested, yet. But some are.
So this morning I slipped out to a nearby blind and waited. Once it was good daylight a doe with a fawn came down the hill to the south and paid the plot a visit. And gave my Sony an opportunity to do what it does best.
The doe and fawn walked past me and over to the food plot area. They munched on some broadcast seed overload.
The doe has a striking long face with nice markings. The fawn is good size, larger than most right now, so it was probably born in April.
Fawns tend to wander around and this one comes over close to where I am taking pictures.
It gets very close to me.
Meanwhile the doe was browsing. She pauses and looks around. The fawn comes right to her and you can see the fawn behind the doe in this picture.
The fawn soon is in the food plot making the tops of short green stems shorter.
Before long the doe walks away.
The fawn realizes the doe is moving on and it goes too.
And that was Thursday morning in the deer woods.
