I am a senior in college in central Iowa. I began bow hunting a few years ago and have a question about doe management. I have this doe on camera who is with two fawns. My question is whether or not these two fawns are old enough to survive without their mother if a shot opportunity presented itself.
Thanks in advance for your answer!
All states set the antlerless harvest seasons to occur when most fawns can survive on there own. There’s always a chance of late born fawns. Such fawns would likely still have spots, etc. The fawns in your picture appear healthy and well developed!
