Deer are not their most photogenic at this time as the winter coat has a faded, ragged appearance and a lot of the hair is loose and falling out. By late May or early June, the winter coat will be completely replaced by the beautiful, red, summer coat.
The does are pregnant and their abdomens will grow larger as spring progresses. Most fawns in this area will be born in late May though mid-June.
