They don't care bout the dictionary terminology-they TAG them in as yearlings as soon as they loose their spots. They can be 2 months old w no spots and still will be tag in as a yearling.

Mo department of conservation calls a fawn " any deer born that year, usually born may-June" even goes on to say "spotless fawns in late winter months can be bred. Usually with little success".

Dnr, is department of natural resources! They deal with " environmental assistance, air, land and water quality.

Conservation department deals with wildlife, fish, game and refuge parks.

So I doubt the dnr has anything to say about deer and their description.
