Default Fawns in pa

fawns were born this week here in pa.have been seeing a few but sad thing is i will see them now and by oct they are not with mothers.
i really feel BEARS,COYOTES,BOBCATS are putting a real hurt on fawns here in pa.
study that was done said 2 biggest killers were bears/coyotes.

Need to be extra careful mowing the field with the haybine, almost mowed one over several years back. They like to hide in the tall grass.

yes it is.next 3 weeks are really hard on fawns. if mothers can keep them near homes,good chance they will make it.

out in big woods, its not so good.

Such is the cycle of life & the predator/prey balance.

Makes you wonder how there are any deer alive in idaho, wyoming, montana where they have WAY more predators than we do. Wonder if they sit around sobbing about losing fawns?

when the PREY/PREDATOR balance is out of hand and deer numbers are low do this , YES WE SHOULD BE SITTING AROUND SOBBING ABOUT LOSING A FAWN.
i do, it makes me sick to see what is happening .every fawn that we can help keep alive is great thing.
i got 6 coyotes myself this winter. it will be higher next winter because i bought a WARMBAG suit and now i can sit longer in cold and also i got outhouse tent too.
i believe the other states DO SIT AROUND AND SOB,then they grab their gun or trap and do something.

my problem is i feel i am not putting a dent in coyotes.they are everywhere now......
