The unofficial start to the summer is here!  Sun, sand, and swim suits are on everyone’s mind.  Does are even shedding that winter weight.  Of course, it has brown eyes and spots but that doesn’t matter. 

The maximum size of fawns at birth is 5-8% of a doe’s body weight which means a whitetail doe drops 14-20 lbs not including placentas and other membranes and fluids the minute those fawns hit the ground.

Looks like that new bathing suit will fit after all.
