Yes they do but not in all cases.
Some a far more severe than the pics posted here.
The last pic of her..."Fibroma doe" as we call, her is from the next year and the only evidence I could see were small black spots almost like scars where they were.
I think me calling across the field..."C'mon pretty girl,come and get your picture taken" may have been the catalyst to gettin her that close.
Bet the rest of the deer didn't call her "pretty" or take her picture...lol

Here is a little blurb about Fibromas...

These from today.
A misty/cloudy/rainy day halfway down the mountain.

The snow took a huge melting today.
These are the first deer I have seen right around here for a while.
Good to see they look plenty healthy.... :D
Plenty of trails in there and I am setting up my trailcam there for the week while I'm away at work, pretty sure we'll see some more of these girls.
With the heavy/deep snow I don't like venturing after them and causing more stress...they/it should be ok now.
C'mon spring and more melt!!!

Hello all I am new here and new to DSLRs but have been admiring KPRs work for quite a while and more recently the work of some of the other great photographers on this site.
Here is a shot (through my dining room window) from when I first got my camera.

And a few more recent

One from yesterday with a broken leg, I didn’t want to pester her to try and get a better shot, it looks like she is going to have a rough go of it.

This hard snow is tough on em.
They are pretty tought though and your snow appears to be leaving fast KL.
If there was a "good" time for her to have a broken leg now would be it I guess..better than fall anyway.
That one behind the fence looks plenty healthy.

Keep em coming.... :D

K Lantz,

What part of the world are you in? Your landscape reminds me of areas in Missouri. We are heading there in two weeks so I hope to have some wildlife pics to post as well.

kpr - Will her broken leg mend on its own? I would assume she will have some long term effects, limp or restricted hopping.

the leg can mend but the question becomes how many preditors are there for her to worry about and also how plentiful food is. Last thing to consider is weather but with it being spring hopefully she should be fine. Like KPR mentioned if this would have been fall her chance of survival would be minimal to zero. At least where there are harsh winters.

Hello Rebel702;
I am from Nova Scotia , I suppose I should have entered that info into my profile. I’ll have to work on that.

I waited quite a while for here to “make the leap” but she wouldn’t come out onto the field with me there, I got one of the younguns in action though.
