Default Whitetail or Axis?

This one has me confused. Either a really late fawn or its an axis but the head looks like a whitetail. What is it?

Wow. Pic was from Dec 22. Can’t believe it was so late. Plus somehow survived anthrax

I have a WT fawn that still has spots at the lease. The one in your pic is a WT as previously stated.

No doubt WT. I saw one last weekend in Starr county that still had faint spots.

This solves the early or late season doe killing.

We can't ever kill them because they could always be bred!

As mentioned above...whitetail

Here in New Braunfels, I've seen fawns born from April to December. We have several running around right now that are much smaller than the one you posted.

I have one that was born Oct 2, still has spots. That fawn is bigger and older(born earlier) but holding spots better. I've seen em hold spots into spring shedding time.

As stated above a WT and a walking example of why shooting spikes to improve your genetics is a mistake.

Not to hijack, but on December 27th I walked up on a WT fawn that was no more than a few hours old.... still wobbly legged. Momma was blowing like crazy at me. He started following me so I picked up the pace. When I came back thru 30 minutes later he was gone. ( or I didn't see it )
