Summary

Summary

For white-tailed deer, what transpires during spring determines whether a new generation of whitetails - the year's allotment of fawns - will flourish or fail.

The grim period of winter that culls thousands of sick, lame, and other unfit animals is over.

For does heavy with young, the effects of a severe winter linger into spring.

However, when spring follows a mild to moderate winter season, does and their fawns revel in a bounty of resurgent flora, and savor their hard-earned freedom from climatic stress.
