I shot a yearling this evening that had the permanant premolars fully erupted, are just about fully erupted. When would this deer have been born?

The last pre molar is replaced at about 19 months of age.

Mid April birth? I wonder how common that is. I saw a newborn fawn on 9 May years ago...earliest I have seen.

Fawn births have been documented during almost every month of the year. Nature gets around to trying everything. That's how Natural Selection works--it uses (and needs) the random variations of Nature to select against, and just about every aspect of a species will display some random variation.
