Resting Fawn

It appears that the luck I had last month in hunting season has carried over to my camera trapping... bad luck that is. I noted that I had relocated all of my cameras last Sunday and was expecting great things :). I checked the cameras a day earlier than normal because of the forecast bad weather and I'm going to a basketball game tomorrow afternoon. I only had 15 pics on the first camera I checked. That was O.K. because it was in a opening in thick cover where I didn't expect a lot of pics. I was hoping to catch one of the big bucks using the trail. The next two are both in major deer travel corridors and I expected some good pics. The end result was one small buck and a doe on one camera and not a single deer on the other :(. But that just how it goes. So I dug back through my pics and found some of a fawn and it's mama that I hadn't posted. Hopefully next week will be a better week for the camera traps.

Maybe a weather change will create more activity around the cameras. Took the dogs for a walk yesterday and we saw a fairly good size buck by the creek. No photos -- happened too fast, but was good to see anyway! :)

I think they are interesting pics.

Very nice shots! And so close!

Aw, what a sweet little fawn. We have a game cam set up to see what investigates our hen house at night, but so far we've only captured the dogs on their evening and morning patrols.
