Default Will you shoot a doe with a yearling?

I was wondering if everone feels the way that I do about
shooting a doe with a yearling. I just can' t do it. Something
inside of me says it is wrong. Let me know what ya' ll think.

I' ll probably get slammed for this, but here goes. IF the deer has lost his spots and especially if it' s a little later in season, I' ll take her. She' ll be running him off when the rut kicks in anyway.

It depends on how big the yearling is. I' ve noticed on the forum that it varies in peoples opinions on how big a fawn or a yearling is. If the offspring deer is a doe and half to two thirds grown, shoot both of them..........

By the time season rolls around, I think the general concensus is that the yearling should be alright on it' s own. Take her[]

Biologists have concluded that August 15th is the average date when a fawn can live on it' s own in my part of the country.

I gotta better idea... leave the doe for breeding stock and whack the lil one, I LOVE " lil veal cutlets" sauted with a lil butter and Cavenders, serve warm with a nice merlot!

as long as it doesnt have spots and doesnt look to dependant on her...they have to learn to live alone sooner or later....call me cruel or whatever but they been with her for atleast about 6 months..they are ready by then...most does i seen are in herds of mature does by december anyway...the earliest i can take a doe is late october....ive never actually seen a doe with yearlings that were small while hunting them...but im not out early either.....
