    Well, I'm back to lottery, so I can shoot a either a buck or doe. I'm still thinking that the regs will change next season to knock the deer numbers down here in moose territory. I'd love to be able to shoot a doe or two. :tu:

    223 but not sure if I have a doe that needs to be taken out. Shooting a doe is like butchering chickens to me.

    There is a doe that has been busting me for a few years now. She's crazy smart. She looks to see if the truck is parked a half mile across the field. She gonna get it this year.

    It is like cutting a head off a chicken, no thrill you end up bloody, it's all work.

    I guess I view it way differently, I love the venison and I get excited shooting anything with my bow

    348 is now managed... Time to stick a doe early season and a big buck during the rut... With the antler point restrictions I have been seeing some good deer on public land...

    Why would you take out the very best live bait before the rut? Kill a doe late

    Where we are there is an over population on does, so to make a more successful rut the does would have to be shot before the rut.

    Same here, yet there's no option of tagging one if I want to shoot a buck.
