Not sure how they roll, but it seemed like one...

Nice pic! Fawns hang out with mom. Does hang out in groups.
She sure looks like she is eating well. Lots of food here, I guess.....
We had a good summer- not too hot, plenty of rain. Deer give birth to more fawns when they have more food. That relies on a good mast crop (which is a cycle type of deal), but they probably rely a lot on grass/corn in your area.
Record apple crops nationwide this year, too
Lots of truck farms and orchards within 1/4 mile of that field. Lots of corn too. It's like deer paradise.
Not even sure if they have much hunting on the island because it's small and close-in.
Bucks come out of hiding this time of the year too.
This dude strolled casually by outside my window the other day.
Is that on the island? Hunting is allowed in November. Lots of deer swim back and forth from Prudence Island.
Pictures mean more when you have been there! Great visit we had Dennis!
Yes, those pics are right on wapping road near where it heads uphill to sweet berry farm.
Oh, I knew Prudence had a big population, but didn't know they could swim deep water for long distances!
Unfortunately about 35,000 deer are killed on NY highways each year. A small white deer family live around our neighborhood, I'll try to post some pictures if I see them.
They will eat the apples, but real damage is done when they eat the fruiting spurs off the tree. They're full of protein and irresistible to pregnant doe.
They beautiful as long as they're on their side of the fence!
Yup. I didn't mean that they did damage, but that more apples to eat equates to more deer born in a year. They're pretty interesting in how they breed/give birth with regards to food supply. In bad winters they will strip bark right off the trees, potentially killing some.
