Deer Friends,
This is all about the RIO GRANDE TURKEY.  Look at this video by Mossy Oak.  It was produced on the ranch this spring during The Rio Round Up hosted by Mossy Oak.  It gives a great over view of the ranch with great turkey video.

We love reading about deer.  In the latest QDMA there are several articles that have caught the eye of this blogger.  Mature Bucks: Who Needs "Em?  and Aging Bucks on the Hoof.

Hope you enjoy.

Story shared from QDMA by Brian Murphy
Deer Friends,
Shared from QDMA by Brian Murphy June 3, 2016
It’s early June and social media is abuzz with photos of recently born fawns from across the country.
While we love seeing these reports of successful whitetail breeding efforts, the ensuing discussion
often leads to misinformation regarding whitetail fawns.
So today we wanted to address five of the most prevalent fawn myths.

1.  A fawn is abandoned because there is no doe in sight.
This is simply the whitetail’s predator avoidance strategy.
Fawns spend their first 3-4 weeks hiding before they routinely follow their mothers.
2.  Fawns are odorless.
This is false, as their unique scent is how their mothers identify them.
In fact, they urinate on their tarsal glands daily, even when just a few days old.
3.  A set of twin fawns are always from the same father.
This also is false. Research has documented that about 25 percent of all sets of
twin fawns come from different fathers. There has even been a case of triple
paternity documented where a set of triplets was sired by three different bucks.
4.  There are more female fawns born than males. Again false.
In fact, male fawns tend to slightly outnumber female fawns.
5.  Once you pick up a fawn its mother won’t take it back.
Research has clearly shown that handling a fawn, even for several minutes, has no impact
on whether its mother will accept it. Just return it to where you found it and leave.

So, next time you are discussing fawns with your family and friends,
please share these fun facts. We also hope you spend more time thinking
about the fawns on your hunting property and, importantly, their survival
during their first few weeks when they are especially vulnerable. Not long ago,
the topic of the day was how best to protect yearling bucks.
Today, and into the foreseeable future, it will be how to increase fawn
survival in areas where predators have become the norm.
It’s definitely a new day in the world of the whitetail.
