ODD COUPLE........It's unusual to see a buck and doe together this time of year. They are at the salt area every day and seem to be traveling together. Are they last years twin fawns ? Sometimes I see spike bucks and small does together,but this guy has quite a nice rack. Again doe is thinner than usual ,buck seems to be in better shape.

FIRST FAWN of season..... This the first fawn of the season that has visited my salt area.By now the remote camera should have picked up many young. The mother is in very poor shape. Don't understand with the lush foliage why some deer are so thin. Not much corn or soybeans in the immediate area. Note the extreme long face of mother and fawn.
