Usually I see deer in November or during mating season in the Fall. Recently in the past few weeks I have seen several packs of deer and tonight one was walking down my sidewalk. I don't live in the country but there are some wide open fields nearby that are undeveloped yet some busy roads and even stores within a mile as well. What was interesting is I was going out to put something in my mailbox around 11PM when I saw the deer. It did not seem afraid of me and I did make noise walking before I saw it. The deer just stared at me and kept walking past me within 20 feet not considering me a threat. Of course my son told me I was nuts because deer can charge at you but what do I know! I also usually don't see a lone deer as they tend to travel in packs. Is anyone experiencing these sightings?

This is the time of year when fawns are born.
And the ones that were born last year are now about a year old. Those are striking out on their own and finding their own territory and groups.
It's a new cycle. Mama has a new baby. The ones that were born last year are leaving Mama and looking to be on their own.
There are actualy two heavily active deer seasons. In the fall when they are in rut, and about this time of year when the yearlings go out on their own and start roaming.
You may see a larger amount of road kill than you have since last fall so be carefull on the roads especialy at dawn and dusk.
The yearlings may not be in groups yet but they will before long when they start banding together with their own little clans.
If you should see a new born fawn, stay away. Mama is very protective.
This time next year Mama will chase off this years crop when she is about ready to give birth again. The cycle continues year after year.
My daughter was in W.va this past weekend on an old rural road. She saw a deer and stopped to let her kids see it. Then she noticed a beautiful little spotted new born fawn. She zoomed in with the camera and got a picture. Great picture. I don't know if there is anything cuter than a new born fawn in the animal world.

I expected it to be frightened but it did start to walk towards us then we freaked and ran LOL Isn't that uncommon or is it just not afraid of humans yet?
