After feeding her and picking off a ton of ticks , our next step was what to do with her. By Georgia law you can't raise or keep a deer as a pet. The DNR website provided deer rehab facilities in our area. Due to the economy and lack of support , every last contact resulted in zero. Everybody we talked to told us to return her to the woods or just put her down.
If you should see a fawn alone , please do not approach it. This was a special situtation where we knew the mother was dead. Generally fawns are born mid to late June. They are born scentless to help predators not be able to find them. Usually the mother isn't far away. If you get involved like we did , the results may not have such a happy ending. If unsure you can contact the DNR or let us know and we will get you in touch with rehab facility.

Since these phones drain so quick in remote areas where service is spotty at best we needed a way of keeping on the network when we can.
I found a Solar charger system that I like. It comes with a rechargeable reserve battery.
The reserve battery will full recharge the blackberry 3 times. The reserve battery takes 12-16 hours to recharge via solar.
This same unit can recharge other battery systems like the Duracell Power to Go in about 10 hours.
It's amazing that phones can handle your music , pictures , videos and even show you current weather.
