Deer are incredible survivors. Once you get them past the need to be bottle fed, they won't need much more help before you can turn them loose and they will fend for themselves.

These days fawns need to be taught by their mothers how to avoid coyotes.

I think more importantly they need to be taught by their mothers how to avoid hunters.

A friend and I found ourselves in a situation while in the woods in which there were two fawns like those that were covered in ant bites. We found a decaying carcass of a doe and figured it was their mother. We took the fawns home and gave them bottles of colostrum (milk replacement for calves) that we got from the feedstore and addressed the ant bites. They grew up and were quite hilarious. We did turn them loose at a sate park once we figured that they could survive on their own. The down side is that they were not scared of humans after that and thought the dog was a playmate.

These are "rescues"....Local P.D. calls when they get them....They are suppose to "dispose" of them , but we try to give them a chance...They do hang around for awhile, show up around dusk every night...

I try to keep the coyotes taken care of for them

A work pal of mine was home running his big trackhoe on his farm and heard something strange, so he shut it off and discovered a fawn with a broken leg. He took it home and put a cast on the fawn's leg.

The fawn is doing great, following him all around in the house. My pal's sister and dad are vetanarians and my pal of course, picked up on a lot of patching up critters.

There was no doe in the area when he found the fawn. He figures (probably correctly) the fawn would have died without medical attention.
