Fort Campbell, KY – It is the season for fawns here on Fort Campbell, as does typically give birth in May and June.
The deer population on Fort Campbell is very dense, especially in the housing areas where hunting is not allowed.
When a doe gives birth its first instinct is to protect the fawn. The doe feeds her young every two to three hours.
Whenever the doe is out in the open with her fawn, the fawn is in danger of attacks from predators. Because she must continue to forage for food, she hides her fawns somewhere safe. Here on Fort Campbell that safe spot often is somewhere near houses in a flower bed or yard.
