I like to take a doe first for the freezer and then its on for the big boy. With a three deer limit , I hunt two different zones, I think Ill wait til the end before filling the other two tags with does.

I would have to say both. I'm always "expecting" a monster to come out of a thicket, though that rarely happens. I let alot of small bucks walk right on by this year (even take pics of em), but I don't let the season pass without filling the freezer with at least onenice doe. We all gotta do out part w/management and they sure are tasty.

I try to fill both my tags each year. One with a doe for meat and one with a 2 1/2 year old or older buck as my trophy.

I voted "both". I always make it a point to fill my freezer every year , but then again I'm in an area with too many doe which makes filling my freezer easy. I think anyone who voted strictly "meat" aren't being honest. If presented achoice between a doe and a trophy buckI'm pretty sure everyone here would take the trophy buck over the doe.

Trophy doe for meatthan hopfully a big buck for meat. A big buck has it all, big antlers and lots of meat. my site: www.pbase.com/mlo3135127 & www.wildturkey.smugmug.com

I said neither. I'm just a hunter.

I like hunting big bucks. I shoot a doe first off for my farmer then I wait for a buck that I will take to the taxidermist. After (and if )that happens I will take another doe for me.
same here for me, but it is my farm

I voted both. This year I got 2 bow does and then started letting stuff walk waiting on a good buck.
