The number of fawns a whitetail doe can have varies, although most females don’t have more than 3 infants. Similar to most mammals, fawns cannot fend for themselves and rely on their mothers for food. Fawns begin to follow their mothers on foraging trips once they’re about 1-2 months old, and during this period does become extremely protective of their young. While female whitetail deer are less confrontational than males, during child rearing they become very defensive and are easily provoked. This furry little fawn has lost its mother and wants to go home with you!
Unlike many other species of mammal, whitetail deer fawns do not stay close by their mothers for protection. Instead, very young fawns will lay very still in tall grasses in order to evade possible predation while their mothers leave to forage for food.
