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.
How do you know that? Where did you get your information?

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 don't believe that to be true..

Joesph if they'd been a couple days old then they would be able to run...

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.

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

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
