I have been watching the does on my game cams and some are big with soon to arrive fauns. The bucks are starting to develop their velvet antlers. My friends found a surprise on their deck yesterday. they were out in the yard feeding oranges to the momma doe

The College I was a Director at down that way had 400 acres a lot of it nature preserve. The grounds crew mowed lots that wasn't wetlands and this time of year they ran across fawns almost everyday. Always had to teach new hires to just mow around them no need to touch them or bring em back to the shop momma wasn't too far away. We had some fantastic deer there, 12, 14 pointers. Heavy antlers. We would find the bodies of some big bucks there every year, trophy hunters just taking the head and cape. When parks and wildlife would run a sting every so often what came up in there nets wasn't guys from the subdivision across the way but HPD, Houston Police doing the poaching, guess they thought they were above the law.

I have seen several fawns in the last week and the neighbors are seeing them heeling the does out in hayfields. No twins yet that I have seen but seems to be a good bunch of fawns.

I have been picking up a tiny faun on one of my game cams, just a couple times. also get a doe coming to that area during the day. I'm not going over there very often right now. about a week ago I saw a momma doe and a faun in the road near my driveway at nite. It was still a bit wobbly legged. Still waiting for the fauns to show up with the does on the cams.

Bucks in budding velvet I am starting to see a few

I had not seen any hog sign or picked any up on my game cams since med-Feb but recently I'v run across fresh hog poop in my yard. It hasnt been raining and none of the mast plants are fruiting. Usually only see hogs up at my place when its been wet, or really wet and flooding. Makes me wonder if they are cruising the uplands searching for newborn fauns

A 25 lbs shoat tried to race my car across the road last nite. Broke the side light cover but no major damage. One less hog out on Hilliard road. First time I'v seen a live hog on that road, lived out there since 79. 20 lbs dressed out
