There are many people who only shoot young does with their doe tags as
1. They are tender and easy to drag out
2. They like a huge deer population and if you shoot a mature, old doe....then you have just taken a deer out of the breeding stock that was producing triplets and or twins each spring. A yearling or young doe only produces one off spring...so if you like a huge deer pop in your area...then don't shoot mature does until they get real old and quit producing large litters.

Bottom line, when people start paying your bills and send monthly checks to your mailbox, then worry about their opinions. Until then, let it roll like water off of a ducks butt.

I guess if you like small portions of meat you might get 40 pounds of meat off a yearling myself I wouldnt waste the money on permits and arrows and energy for such a small amount of meat I think it has more to do with lazyness not being able to drag a mature deer cause I have yet to bite in to a 3 year old buck that isnt chewable.

As far as your credibility goes..............: http://www.huntingnet.com/forum/bowh...275-funny.html

good job bud! as far as buckmasterrob or whatever his name is, the average 3.5 year old deer in MY area dressed out at about 90 lbs. I've seen the deer in her area, and thats definitly a good sized one. Not huge, but hey, who wants to drag out a 150 lb deer when its 80 degrees out.
