Deer Hunting Big Bucks Spring

Hunting big bucks may be over for now but we are always thinking about it even if it’s spring. Man, here at we sure are glad it is spring,with the flowers and trees in bloom, and the warmer weather it’s such a fun time of the year. There is so much fun stuff to do this time of year.

The fish are probably biting anything that you throw in the water. I would love to go to the river and catch a stringer full of white bass, hybrids, or strippers. They are making there way up the river to spawn.

It is so much fun catching them this time of year because they are so concentrated. Also the crappie are biting like crazy. I caught these trolling with my father-in-law. They are so good to eat! (Yummy!)

hunting big bucks rut

Hunting big bucks is best during the rut.

Tomorrow is the first day of turkey season here in Georgia. Good luck to all you turkey hunters. I had planned on trying to go, but my wife had surgery yesterday so I won’t be able to go this weekend.

I’ll get a report from my father, or step-father, and maybe even some pictures if they get one.

My son got a new four-wheeler for Christmas and we are just now getting him to ride it.

He is doing really good to be only two and a half years old. My eight month old boy watches him everywhere he goes on that thing, he wants to ride it so bad he gets so excited watching his brother ride it.

Hunting Big Bucks

The big bucks are dropping their antlers, there have been quite a few nice ones found on our property.

Also, it is almost time to plant those food plots. With a little preparation you can have some great food plots fairly inexpensive. So get out and plant those plots. It will be time to go hunting big bucks before you know it.

I just love the spring and all the fun things to do, and the great weather. Now if I could just get a little time off work to get out and enjoy it. One things for sure before you know it it’ll be time to go deer hunting big bucks.


Whitetail Fawns

The does will be having their fawns soon, predators will be on the prowl and the fawns spots will help to hide the fawns from them.

If you like deer hunting big bucks, you know that not only has spring training begun for the boys of summer, and Nascar is at full throttle, the fishing is fixing to get real good, turkey season is starting.

Whitetail Fawns

Okay, with all the fun going on it’s easy to forget about the does giving birth to their whitetail fawns. Why is this significant? Well if you enjoy deer hunting real big bucks one of these new fawns could very well be one of those big bucks of a lifetime. Hopefully the does are healthy during the gestation period. The gestation period for a doe is around 202 days. Usually around late May early June is when the fawns will be born. Usually after the age of 2-½ on they will give birth to twins. Most of the time one will be a buck and one will be a doe. Sometimes the does will give birth to triplets
The first two days are critical to the survival of the fawn. After the two days, there chances of survival are much better.
Usually whitetail fawns weigh between four and seven pounds when born. The doe will determine a safe location for the fawn and it will stay in that surrounding area for the first three to four weeks. The doe will come to the location so the fawn can nurse. The only time the doe comes around, is to nurse the fawn, as not to give away it’s location. The fawn is odorless for the first few days.
The spots help keep the fawn camouflaged. If trouble comes near its instincts will tell it to lie flat and motionless.
About two weeks after birth, the fawn will start to eat solids. After about a month it will be able to travel around with its mother. It will loose its spots around twelve weeks, and start looking like a mature deer. They will remain with their mother for about a year sometimes longer. The doe will teach the fawn all about survival .
During June and July the fawns will grow quickly. Fawns are every playful and fun to watch. I would like to take my camcorder and record some fawns playing, it is downright funny sometimes. One time when I was deer hunting I watched two older fawns chase each other around a cornfield. It was a sight to behold. One of them would be feeding and the other one would playfully dance up to it, and when it would get close, the other one would chase it about 100 miles an hour around the corn field. They did that over and over until it got dark.
So when I hear that bat hit the ball, or hear gentlemen start your engines, or catch a big fish, or hear that turkey gobble I will smile and think about that newborn fawn and what a wonderful spring day it is.
