Default RE: Small Deer

I would rather someone shoot small deer for meat as opposed to shooting small bucks. where I live in Northern Michigan a small deer has less of a chance at making it through the winter then a deer that is mature. So if it is legal then it makes more sense to shoot the yearlings. To many people put to much into only shooting bucks around here. So they go out and shoot spikes and four points, put the meat in the freezer and the antlers in a box in the garage. I to have been guilty of the same thing untill it dawned on me that it makes more sense to shoot a doe or fawn for meat and let the small boy grow to be big bucks.
