It is that time of year in the Texas Hill Country (usually April to July) when you see spotted fawns.

We would like to remind you to not touch or disturb fawns. Fawns are born scent-free and leaving human scent on their body will attract predators. A whitetail doe will typically leave their fawns in brushy overgrown areas, which may include tall grassy areas, flower beds, and gardens. They are not abandoned or in any distress in most cases and being picked up may cause more harm than good. Chances are that mom is nearby and knows exactly where they are.
