Unless you have them fence in alone by them self, there is no way to tell how many fawns a doe has except through a DNA test. Whitetail does are great mothers and will let fawns, other than their own, nurse.
Young, first time mothers, generally have 1 fawn and then afterwards normally have twins. Having 3, or even 4 does happen on occasion.
I know it depends on the location as well. In Alabama our deer heard is so large that quite a few does on our property from year to year have triplets, but most of them usually drop 1 or 2.
We even had a 3 legged doe for the longest time who had triplets every year until one of the IDIOT hunters that USED to be the club decided he wanted to shoot her. It was a shame. She was a great producer. She usually had 2 bucks out of the 3.
I will admit, I love deer plots.
I love planting... even the garden at home.
What I do not like are high cost farm implements.
I found myself in need of a cultipacker for clover and other small seed - but could not find a decent deal on a small unit.
OK, fine... I will make one!
The materials were very simple... some plastic corrugated sewer drain pipe, some metal, 2 bearings and some concrete and you are in business!
I cut the pipe, in this case, to 46" wide - as I intended to pull this one...
