Default shoot a doe!!!

no offense to anyone that goes all there life only shooting bucks but shoot a doe it helps your deer herd by balancing the doe/buck ratio and u get some good meat by it and dont be embaressed if u do shoot a doe even if people rag on u (refering to neck4752 posts, dont feel bad neck i shot my second deer this year in opening day of shotgun season and and it was a doe and people ragged on me)

I agree with you but some people have their own way of hunting and they have that right. Im not going to stop them. I personally shot a doe or two a year and get a buck im im lucky. Hey even the first day of shotgun season if a nice doe comes by yea ill shot it because I know i will regret it later if my freezer is empty.

i've shot 5 bucks and 14 does..you gotta shoot those does. if not, you're gonna be in earn a buck like us. i dont mind earn a buck, because it helps us manage our property a little better. the only time would shoot a doe right away on opening morning would be if were in an earn buck zone. other than that, like in iowa, i just let the does walk until we do some small drives, and then we usually try and take a couple. we get enough where i dont have to worry about not getting one.

glad to see some people agree with me but here in ohio everyone now just shoots bucks with 2 world record bucks taken in 4 years
when i went to the processor out of about 12-20 deer there was about 3 does everything else bucks there were spike buck 3points and a whole bunch of small ones. those guys need to let them grow!

I've taken 3 bucks and 2 does this year.
Thats just the luck of what walked out infront of my tree for me.
I'm happy with all of them

I agree its a good idea to take a few does a year as well. I am more in favor of somebody taking a doe rather than a young buck. It seems like a waste to me for people to shoot bambi bucks just to say they got a buck. In my opinion does are twice as good eating as a buck and should not be overlooked.
