    Year to year here. This year I'm seeing more singles than doubles. Most years I think it's pretty even. Last year most does I saw had 2 and a couple even had 3 with them (maybe adopted, dunno).

    I see twins at least as often as single fawns. Lots of good food in Central New York, both natural and agricultural.

    Thanks Rich. Everybody puts their trail Cam three feet off the ground. I like placing my cam a foot off the ground when the bait is ten feet away.

    Nice bachelor party there Neuman23.?

    FWC classes Young 4yr/o Bucks make twins more often then not (they got the power);-)) That's why we are a QDM No 4-pointers taken.

    It is quite common around my area, (that being rich farm land) to see twin fawns. From most that I have read, nutrition is the most important thing concerning if one or two fawns are dropped ! Age of the doe may also be a factor, too young or too old, but I am not up on that fact. We as hunters want more deer, farmers want less with a balance that is difficult to reach. Sort of like sex in the human siuation, lol !

    The article was very interesting reading. I was of the thought that a doe was only in estures for around 36 hours and that the breeding buck stayed with her for all that time and thus was the sire of dropped fawns ! Evidently does have “hot pants” more than I thought. Must be good to be a male deer, oops, there is always hunting season to take into consideration ! But then, good aspects of life always seem to have a down side !
    I see a fair amount of twin fawns on trail camera. I did get a first for me this summer, a set of triplets. I'll see if I can find the picture.

    Seldom see twin fawns around my place, probably due to lack of quality food sources. The pet does at the camp dropped their fawns two weeks ago, but haven't brought them up for inspection yet.
    I don’t know about that PH, it all depends if he can get a doe to stand still long enough !

    I thought it was more prevalent to be honest. I thought the reason I only saw 1 fawn was because something had already happened to the other one in the litter
