    Proud of you at least there some good hunters still. If you shoot a doe with a fawn the fawn has less chance of surviving

    Had some drop real late this year as well. I know one dropped in mid to late September.

    That’s why I only shoot tiny bucks. No chance of making an orphan out of a fawn that way.

    I used to pop anything. Fawn or doe with fawn. Now after shooting tons of deer I’m much more soft hearted. I’ll wait until the fawns are much older or wait on a single doe. I no longer have a kill at all cost mentally. I like deer meat but many other parts of the hunt are just as rewarding.

    Yea, I always wait for a single doe. We need 1 deer to feed us for the year usually and I feel like I have a good shot at accomplishing that. Many theories on which deer to take like a mature doe or yearling depending on your thoughts of survival for them. I can't for the life of me shoot one with young fawns, and it just doesn't feel right plus I'm confident enough that I can get a mature doe during the season.

    End of November that "fawn" had plenty of meat on it and boy was it good.

    Some of you need to stop being so damn judgmental. If a person kills deer legally, who are you to judge somebody for their choice of targets? I don't give a rat's ass about who kills what, as long as it is done legally, and ethically.

    People that say people that shoot fawns are dumb are dumbest. It's their tag, why not support them shooting whatever they want to shoot? Dead is dead no matter how old a deer is. I guess you wait until a deer is in a nursing home on life support before you shoot one so your're sure they've lived a good long life right? I swear... some people???????????

    I’ll go with this! I’ve never even killed a “big buck” by some standards and this is why. I’ve been thinking I had poor hunting skills but really I was just thinking about increasing the population.
