My little friend has returned...

After two or three years of not seeing her, a little piebald doe I've been seeing occasionally showed up along the road on the way to my hunting spot. I knew she was small (as genetic mutations often are), but I was stuck by the fact that she was not all that much bigger than the fawns she was with. I'm guessing she's at least 6 or 7 years old, based on the length of time I've been seeing her, and accounts by others who have seen her. These aren't trail cam pics but I though this would be the best place to post them. Mods, if you feel this should be moved to the General Hunting forum, go ahead. I apologize for the poor quality cell phone pics.

Are you sure this is the old doe? Looks like fawn spots coming through on the pictures.

I initially thought that too, but her eyes are black. There's also the splotches of light brown. In any event, she's a pretty cool little deer. I've been asked not to shoot her, and I never would anyways. I'd miss seeing her, and I'd hate to deprive anyone else the pleasure of seeing such a unique deer.

I'm pretty certain that she's the piebald I've been seeing over the past few years. The one I'd been seeing was always pretty small and I also remember her having light brown splotches on her rump. I'm not sure if I've got any old pics to compare. That being said, I'm not sure what the chances are that the piebald had fawns that also had the same recessive genes come through. Who knows, you may be right. Anyways, I enjoy seeing her (or her offspring, whichever the case may be) and thought you guys would as well. Thanks for commenting!!!!!
