Peak activity time for does with fawns in the Roan Highlands region of North Carolina – interesting for the fact that it was the complete reverse of coyote activity, which peaked at dawn and dusk (see the chart below). Summer Higdon of the University of Missouri ran trail-cameras at 40 sites throughout summer 2015. She found does without fawns moved most at dawn and dusk along with peak coyote activity. Only the does with fawns appeared to time their movements when encounters with coyotes were least likely.
Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
