    I don't think too kindly of people touching new born fawns as I seen where the mother will abandon the fawns after being touched by humans.

    I think that was neat, thank you for sharing. I too have many times come accross babies and momma was close by watching very closely and have never seen them reject the babies. But hey what do I know I am only 47 years old and spent more the 3/4's of that time in the woods hunting, fishing, hiking or just getting away from it all.

    I can't remmember where I read it, but I asked a local CO about touching new born fawns, was told that fawns are born scent free and when you touch them, they are no longer scent free. This will and can bring in the preditors.
    Thats the info I was given many years ago.
     
  8. Making the fawn smell like a human's hand brings in predators? I've never had a predator want to come anywhere near my scent.

    With that logic I'd want to get up wind so that the Coyote could smell my scent and come to me, right? Too bad but that's not how it works
