Mother nature also made them taste good.This time of year I base it on how independent the fawns are from the mother. If one or both are always right with her or even suckling on her she would get a pass. If she has button bucks tho there’s a good chance they’re already wandering and already independent of her. Come November she will start the kick to the curb process anyway. Button bucks without their mom in the picture are less likely to disperse from the property.
I was waiting for this to pop up! Like people calling them hornsFYI, fawns are what you’re referring too I think. Yearlings are deer that are a year old.
Shoot whichever you prefer. The remaining deer will be fine. Me personally, I’ll shoot the fawn and let mom keep on her way. That tender little morsel will go right into burger patties. Probably won’t even freeze any of it. Lol
Agree 100 percent!!This is STRICKLY left up to the shooter!!! It is DEER season....NOT yearling season, doe season, buck season.
The fawns are weaned and can fend for themselves...food wise. Personally, I won't shoot one, but ONLY because there's not enough meat on that animal to justify my tag. Legally, the State says they're all good to go. So, shoot what you want and be happy! Good luck and good hunting!
