Who's his Daddy?

  1. Who's his Daddy?

    [​IMG] Some whitetail research studies have shown that maybe 1 in 4 sets of twin or triplet fawns had 2 fathers. Oh, those does are ---! (your imagination, fill in the blank).
    This excerpt from a story over at qdma.com. Kip Adams wrote:
    There are several explanations for joint siring. Remember, bucks will repeatedly breed does during the 24 to 36 hours they are in estrous. It is plausible that a buck breeds a receptive doe and then gets displaced or run off by a larger, older or more aggressive buck while the doe is still receptive. The larger/older/more aggressive buck then breeds the doe, and the doe can have fawns sired by each of the bucks. The initial breeder may have been a young buck who was in the right place at the right time before getting displaced by an older buck, or he may have been the most dominant buck in the area but was “run down” from prior breeding activity and was displaced by a more aggressive animal.
    So who's his (or her) daddy? Nobody knows.

    I know we had the number teen pregnancy rate in the state for some time. :gaga: And it seems there's a lot that have several potential daddies. Something to be proud of... just like our unemployment
