I saw one Saturday morning out in the field behind the house with its momma, and again this morning at 5:45 wading in the creek in front of the house on my way into work.
Wading in a creek? Not much wading here in Nashville (although recent rains have helped).
My mother had a fawn in her thick flower/bush bed right next to her pool, which is right next to her house. Was it: simply a nice place to hide a newly dropped fawn - the only reason why my mother knew it was there is because her dog blew out the mother; right next to the house and probably less likely that the 'yotes would find it; or because there is water there - two nearby creeks are bone dry? The mother obviously drinks water, but a fawn sticks to the mother's milk early on, right?
I assume the answer is probably a little of all of the above.
