Whitetail fawning season means deer are on the move, public reminded to leave fawns alone

Fawning season in Iowa and most states in the Midwest traditionally begins during the last week of May, and peaks in the first couple of weeks of June before gradually tapering off. The Iowa DNR reminds the public that with fawning season comes deer are on the move.
Does are secretive about the birthing process and will venture out from normal use areas looking for a secluded spot to deliver this year’s crop of fawns in peace, said Jim Coffey, forest wildlife research biologist with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR). “This seclusion process is a driving force in protection for the lanky, wavering fawn. Fawns will be left alone while the doe returns only to nurse. This is normal deer behavior,” he said.

Herbster always stays on the trail, and the foxes have become used to her passing.

Pheasants Forever appoints Sabin Adams as new state coordinator in Minnesota

In physics, if an object is moving, it is said to have kinetic energy. Sabin Adams isn’t a physicist, but he is sympathetic to the principle, both personally and professionally.
“You could say I don’t like to sit around very much,” Adams said with a laugh.
On Tuesday morning, Adams, 33, who lives near Alexandria, began a new job as Minnesota state coordinator for Pheasants Forever and Quail, his fifth position with the “habitat organization” since joining its ranks in 2013 as a Farm Bill biologist in Todd County.
