Hello Grant, family, and staff! How long before a doe is in estrus does she run off her fawns? Thanks


I haven’t researched or read any research about that subject.  I suspect, simply based on field observations, that does won’t leave their fawns until a day or two before they become receptive.

Enjoy creation,
