I am curious because I have heard a lot of different theories and I am wondering what you guys think or what you guys do if you don't bag that big buck or when you want meat in the freezer during the season. 1.) I believe the best scenario is having a big old single doe walk by the stand. 2.) Another scenario is having a doe and a doe fawn come by. Now some people say shoot the doe because there is more meat, but is that really killing the fawn to do you guys think, in places with harsher winters at least? 3.) Some people will say to shoot the fawn because the doe will be able to survive on its own while the fawn may not make it either way. I personally have not been able to bring myself to ever shoot a fawn. 4.) A doe and a button buck. People say the doe will kick the button buck out of the area, so by shooting the doe the button buck has a better chance of staying in the area, if it survives of course? 5.) A doe and two fawns. Now here if you shoot the doe, the two fawns may have each other to rely on, or maybe both not make it through the winter so it is like killing three deer but not getting the meat? 6.) Or the alternative is shooting one of the fawns. 7.) Also, there is shooting a smaller buck that you wouldn't normally shoot. Some people say they rather shoot a buck no matter what the size than a doe, because a different buck will be able to breed that doe still. You can also bite the bullet and not tag a deer if a scenario you like doesn't present itself. I am sure I missed some scenarios, but I am curious to see what you guys think is best for deer management in general, and what you think about the logic behind each of these scenarios or what you would do? I have heard different things from different people and that is some of what I put on here.
