A friend has a small farm with a deer problem, and he got a crop depredation permit. This is not in KY. I'd be hunting over a small two acre produce field, so pretty close shots. Usual season and bag limits really don't apply here either. This needs to be handled some time in the next month or so. The kicker here is that there's usually fawns with does, and the goal is to eliminate deer totally, effectively, and, as always, ethically. I'm concerned that if I kill the does, the fawns will run off and starve, or just plain survive. The fawns will be pretty young. So: would you shoot a fawn first, and just expect the doe to come back, maybe even on another day? Would you shoot the doe, and expect the fawn not to run very far on its own? Would you use a semi-auto or maybe a lever action, shoot the first one, and then try to get a shot at the runner? Or something else entirely? Just something to think about on a Tuesday. Interested to hear what y'all think.
