  1. bad pun forgiven.

    Brinke was simply using terms of endeerment.

    I love to see the sun come up at the break of fawn.

  4. now that one … is not forgiven. :)

  5. Mary (the first) says:

    They really are lovely animals, aren’t they?

  6. Sun, venison de fawn, eez bret-takink, no?

  7. Just so lovely. And these images really capture that.

  8. Saddens me to know that it will be bow season for these poor things, once again. I have a mother and two young ones I have grown fond of, and I hope they don’t end up prey this year.

  9. There’s always walking through the woods banging on a pot with a wooden spoon…

  10. Safety First: Wear a bright orange vest — and paint the pot and spoon orange as well.

  11. That was supposed to be a reply to blair, above.

  13. I go for morning runs on some wooded trails near my house. I often see a doe and her fawns in the same area and the sight always moves me. Mom often looks my way, sniffs, and goes back to her fawns. It’s like she’s saying, “Oh, it’s you again. No big deal.”

    Pretty sure I’m reading way too much into this, but it makes me happy to think she knows I’m no threat to her or her sweet babies.

    I’m not a hunter, but playing Deer Hunter in arcades taught me you’re evidently not supposed to shoot does

    Hunting is arguably a GOOD thing for deer. We’ve killed off their natural predators so if it weren’t for hunting they’d have a population boom every year, then a gigantic die-off once winter hit. Granted, sooner or later they’d probably evolve not to breed so fast. :V

    The point is we need more bears, mountain lions, and wolves.

  15. Smartypants says:

    I have a mental pic of her putting orange vests & caps on the deer til the season is over…

  16. I think that might be counter productive. Best to tie empty cans and bells to the ankles and wrists of hunters
