Getting to Know the Whitetail Deer: When are Whitetail Fawns Typically Born?

Typically in November, female whitetail deer will go into heat. During the “rut” phase or breading season, male “buck” whitetail deer will go through the mating process. Gestation periods for female whitetail deer lasts 200 days, which results in fawn births to happen during late May to early June. Female whitetail that don’t become impregnated during the early phases of the November “rut” period will go into heat again in December or a month later. This results in another potential wave of fawn births to be in later June early July.
