Doe. A deer. Many female deer. And fawns too.

While out in the Hocking Hills region of southeast Ohio two weeks ago, my wife and I saw a ton of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus, Cervidae) along the winding tree-lined roads.  In the course of three days we probably saw at least forty of them.  Each individual sighting consisted of a single doe with one or two fawns.  We never saw any bucks.

Except for the gigantic herd of deer that congregate behind my house in southeast Michigan each winter, I’ve never before seen so many deer in such a short time.
