I’m not into it. I’ll wait a 6-8 more weeks. Not to say I haven’t done it before but….
But.....what?? You kill bambi's dad w/o hesitation to be able to claim victory of a trophy or you give them 6-8weeks to add 5-10lbs? I don't buy into the number of future deer you impact by killing either a doe or a buck. Only the big man above knows how many fawns she could/would have the following year or how many does he could/would breed if he was still alive. All puzzle pieces in the game of life which are out of my control, as much as I want to believe I play a part to a significant degree . The only part I know for a decent amount of certainty, if even a minisuce amount, is when I decide to try and take a life to provide meat for my family. Even then, with odds in my favor, I have been smacked in the face with reality of not retrieving that animal for numerous reasons.

The OP was talking about shooting does, not the young. He asks our opinion and I gave it. But what?…but I have done it. Don’t give a shit what anyone shoots…none of my business. As it’s no ones business what I shoot or don’t shoot.

Agreed, you left it open with a but....I was looking to explore the "....". No harm no foul, all fair game!
