Resident Camp Deer

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Nearby our camp in Maine, this road winds up the side hill to a couple of houses at the end of the road. In the distance you can see a deer. She is our resident deer; been here for a few years. She has produced a few deer over the years but just as often as not, the coyotes get her young before they even have a chance to experience life. The coyotes know her favorite fawning grounds and can smell a newborn from a great distance.

Last year she had twins. They came to visit camp a few times while still in their spots. Don’t know if they made it through the winter. Judging by tracks, it looks like maybe they did.
