Are you my father?

I am not sure if the target in the backyard has made the deer around here more relaxed or not, but for this fawn, it wasn’t sure what to make of this thing that looks like a deer but doesn’t move.  If this target can fool these deer, I am wondering if we could use it as a decoy during hunting season… that is something that I will need to research!

Either way, the doe and the fawn both look incredibly healthy!  Always a good sign for the deer herd.
