You had better check your regs. In many states, including LA., it is illegal to kill a spotted fawn. If there is still one spot, it's illegal.

It's not that you didn't have the guts. It's because you had a heart. I won't shoot a doe with fawns either.

I personally would not shoot a doe with youngins. But if you need meat that bad, go for it. May as well kill them all while your at it. That way your really thinning the herd out.

Duh, I should have known that. Afterall, the thread was about shooting a doe with fawns. My mistake.

A spotted fawn in Oct/Nov in my area is as good as dead come winter. The fact that a deer has a fawn or fawns late enough to still be spotted com FALL - tells me there are too many deer and doe especially. Most often - the fawns with a doe come hunting season, are not spotted and are fully capable of fending for themselves.

I'd never let the presence of fawns - spotted or not - influence my decision on taking a doe in hunting season.

Everyone has their thoughts on this. I personally wouldn't shoot a fawn with a doe. Then on the other hand I won't hold anything against anyone that pulls the trigger.
