I saw a pair of yearlings nursing on their momma this weekend. I've never seen that before, and they didn't have their spots. Isn't it a little bit late for them to still be breast feeding, or not?

I saw two late fawns push momma backwards about ten feet yesterday, they want to feed, momma dosen't want them to.

I've had some on camera doing that before. No spots. Still wanted some of the good stuff.

I've seen em try it before and normally mama doesn't like it. I watched one try for a steady 5 minutes one day. It would ease up to the teet and the doe would pop it on the top of it's head with her hoof over and over.

Never seen yearlings try this time of year - mainly cause they would be 15-18 months old.

Fawns (babies) on the other hand, absolutely.

I've seen it a few times. One time they were so close to me, I could hear the fawn sucking.

Not a fact but I heard they can nurse up close to a year. Guess it just depends on how long momma will let them


Only accurate rifles are interesting.

My terminology might not be right, but I'm sure they were born in the summer. They looked to be about 50 -60 lbs.

Yeah those are fawns. I killed a doe last week that didn't have a spotted fawn, but still had milk bags. In order for that to happen, she must have been nursing recently.

If you are talking fawns (about 6 months old ) , I've seen them try many times. Seen them do it a few times.

Yearlings ( about 1 1/2 YO) don't remember ever seeing it.
