Was out this morning 2nd day of otc deer hunting in AZ and had a doe with 3 different sized fawns with her. One and two were the size of fawns that you normally see this time of year, but number 3 was a peewee. It was half the size of the other fawns. It was also fawn red with spots, but looked to have a winter coat instead of being slick like they normally are with spots. If I had to guess I would say it was about a month old.

There were no other deer with her and fawns, just all out there by their lonesome.

Anyone see anything like this before, I never have?

No, lived in Az.all my life.Saw a fawn chased by a Coyote in Aug. Chased Coyote away. Maybe fawn was from another Doe?

Probably another doe's fawn. Are they rutting yet? Seems early, but often fawns get kicked out when momma is being dogged by a buck.

Here in CA we have observed fawns births being more spread out, perhaps due to climate change? Could be something similar as to why the fawn is so young.
