Do YOU believe in shooting Doe?
(Type: photo | Published: 2013-09-12T15:26:00+0000)
[sdrahcir leahcim rehpotsirhc] - Why wouldn't you? Obviously yes. Even if you're a trophy only hunter you would understand the benefit of quality deer management and understand that the harvesting of does is essential to sustaining healthy populations and healthy doe to buck ratios.
[htrowselrahc selim] - Of course....herd management, unless she has a fawn.\
[daolrevo liatetihw] - Great answers everyone. Thank you for the great feedback. I say shoot 'em!!!!
[nosredna eikcaj] - Meat is meat, unless of course she's got a fawn. Then leave her be!
[musior yllib] - If anyone says no they are hunting for all the wrong reasons!
[zeraus ramo] - Deer jerky don't know gender
[sredna netloc] - If you said no you need to learn about management and population control...
[oha eoj] - I hunt to fill the freezer not for something to look at and brag about. Like my dad used to say "Horns hanging on the wall are pretty but they are awful tough to chew".
[retlaw relyt] - Sheenas a fn retard I've seen alot of does smarter than most bucks as most said its a must for balancing herd n damn they're tasty
[esool cire] - Obviously anyone who says No doesn't have a clue on deer management!
[yettep sirhc] - Yes I shoot 5 every year and one buck!!!
[prahs-lleb acissej] - It's a doe is a deer a female deer, ray a pocket full of sun if the light is right I will shoot me a doe and if I shoot it right it will not have far to go
[elbac alliram] - not if she has little ones
[nnylf gerg] - Went to the forest today to change sd card on the trail camera. 15 yards on the trail I heard a large branch snap to my right. I went another 5 yards on the trail and finally saw what snapped the branch. It was a BIG black bear walking towards where the trail I was walking on started. He never saw me even though he was about 20 feet away when I saw him. Wait till I tell the boys. So at this place where I'm taking the boys on the 28th of this month, I've seen two big does and one big bear. I hope they get something.
[rolbmac yllib] - Are they the one with spots????
[ekaoyloh nayr] - I'm a meat hunter..... But I generally pass on does until late season.
[rekamretsnef nitsuj] - Yes. Filling out all 5 doe tags to say you're a killing machine; no.
[namurt dorraj] - If you don't you aren't a real deer hunter you are just killing, it is vital for herd balance
[nilbmah enahs] - If u don't your not a real hunter!!
[aibot eiffahs] - a. ,if you gonna eat it ..shoot it..if you ain't let it walk !
[rj ffud e semaj] - If it's brown it's down as long as she is sizeable!
[draknils divad] - Only in the head!!!!!!!!!
[hcilearf ttam] - Yes because there's way to many of them and the meat tastes better mmmm jerky!
[nanahcub ffej] - ...what kind of dumb question is this? Truly moral hunters aren't trophy hunters; they hunt to eat. It's a sad society when grown ass men have to seek out and destroy the finest animals of a species just to mount their heads on the wall as if the entire act of doing so somehow progresses and enriches their masculinity or dominance over God's creation. There's absolutely no respect for an animal or any of this Earth in killing for sport. There is a great deal more soul in subsistence than in sport. To Hell with the headhunters.
[ydnul yma] - Yes and lots of them to balance out the herd!!
[ssog regor auhsoj] - A, there's too many accidents and too many doe running around. Insurance would need to be cheaper because all we would be doing is paying deductibles!
[notsnhoj mahnraf ydnic] - Heck Yess! good food there! luv my deer meat. all year, all the time! :) .
[lieflhow .j divad] - For proper game management all sexes must be taken annually. So Yes duh!
[nedah nhoj] - Kind of a stupid question for these modern times. Any hunter with half a brain knows its necessary today to manage the herd and remove some does. Really not even a debatable topic anymore!
[hsuoh nonnahs] - Shooting does is a must to maintain healthy deer herds plus better tasting.
[yennikcm egroeg] - Yes! They taste better!
[sregdor ttocs] - i seen people on here saying they dont get worked up over doe you are on drugs my friends doe are pretty dam elusive
[dnalrahc nek] - A...you have to keep the deer population in check
[tterrab haiasi] - Yes .... buck aren't the only ones that need managing. Besides, you can't eat antler
[nommaccm yaj] - Sheena Coffey your comments shows your ignorance when it comes to hunting.
[rekab ddot] - Yes you should shoot does as long as no fauns in tow. And as long as you take an ethical shot. Alot of you so called meat hunters will shoot anything that walks and that's pure stupidity. A bucks meat tastes just as good as a does. Of course the younger ones will be a lil better eating than the older ones but I won't shoot a young buck. A doe maybe so but let them bucks grow.
[krib nitsuj] - Ill make your hooves curl up you dirty little doe!
[redar pihc] - No I don't , I can't get excited about shooting doe's , although I know they need thinning out ,I'll let someone else do it
[llurt etak] - If you said no, you don't need to be around a gun at all. You have to do herd ratio. Population control too. Its a must.
[rolaeb c nitsuj] - Absolutly i dont know about yall but the last time i had antlers in the crock pot seemed like it took forever to get done lol
[niffirg samoht] - A deer is a deer.
[gineok snomelc yelsew] - Yes sir! I'm a meat hunter. Whatever (within the law) puts meat in the freezer, I'll shoot (I won't shoot fawns or button bucks if I can keep from it).
[eerca divad] - A ..... if ya think about it you know those BIG BUCK'S ya know OL'MOSSY LONG HORN yea he's smart BUT how did he get that smart his daddy sure didn't show him.It was that BIG RAIL HEADED NANNY GOAT that showed him so if ya shoot ya big ol'smart doe SHE'S A TROPHY herself
[kroy gerg] - A Mans gotta eat right?
[yrehten nitsud] - If she doesn't have spotted fawns, she is fair game... I'd rather eat buck tags at the end of season than have a doe tag left over.
[lirrem lorac] - With the cost of food now days, with out a blink of the eye
[retsacnal yeslehc] - A. But only if she is dry
[cinerb nosaj] - You have to!!! Gotta maintain proper herd balance !
[sleinad eeliah] - If you're hunting for the purpose of management and conservation, shooting does is an absolute necessity
[nosnhoj e annod] - Yes i hunt for meant and you can't eat antlers, also the meat is much more tenders
Whitetail Overload: Do YOU believe in shooting Doe?
b). No - 50th Comments
[tloh ycart] - Yes because the doe to buck count can get out of hand and you have to thin out the does
[tdrahreg terb] - Dixin was that ur wife posting for u ?
[tdrahreg terb] - Yup they eat better than buckes cant eat the horns(antlers)
[gidyel llib] - Got to fill the freezer!
[tsruhtab ynahteb] - If it's brown, it's down!
[nosrebor naed] - You have to control population by doing so you keep deer from starving and infectious disease so "yes" I agree with it...respect nature though
[asem b sirod] - Killing for food is ok thats a mans ting i ont kill any thing but snakes spiter creep crawling things and mosqiteow lol
[asem b sirod] - No if youkill. the dearwhat will pull santas slay
[yevnah annasus] - Yes but only on the designated days to aid in over population.
[nosrednug evad] - yes I have shot 2 in my life
[reknuy leahcim] - You can't eat the horns. No matter how long you boil them they never get soft
[eloc samoht] - duh it tastes great ... and it less filling .
[yekbuh liag neleh] - Hell no, I wouldn't even shoot any of them
[sdrahcir ttam] - Is it cruel to hit them with a car or motorcycle? I'm in GA and we have too many little deers running around...
[iksorom llib] - Depends on how hungry I get. B-)
[ezob namot anig] - Depends how hungry I am...
[arahz rebma] - Though I love all animals and they're ridiculously cute, when it's deer time, it's deer time. Nothing like canned deer meat! MMMmm! Yes, that includes the doe.
[rekcedieh ynnos] - do belive shooting fawns.
[yenorc cire] - Yes, but mature ones. It's a must for population control, and I believe doe meat tastes better
[daetskcie retep] - Yes. It is part of managing the deer population where you are at. And they taste good too!
[rebuh evets] - Yes! I love venison, and you can't beat a doe for meat. And I let the little bucks get older....
[splehp llib] - You don't eat horns. SHOOT!!!
[anres eeb niffe] - Raul believes in shooting anything
[retneprac lihp] - Yes this helps to control population!
[lekrem ydnas] - Yes, I just don't shot babies or Mama's that have babies with them
[nnac ynohtna] - Yes otherwise there isn't a balance
[neddeh adnerb] - Look at that sweet face.
[eniomel nairb] - meat is meat !!! Doe or Buck.....
[eromhsa mij] - No. I believe it's a myth.
[tloh yrrehs] - yes it's meat in my freezer and on my table .
[esaep enaud] - A. Kill them all . Save on car repairs
[ttaw luap] - meat is meat if the freezer is empty then shoot to feed I say
[dyob mailliw] - no I would never shoot them... I just run them over with the truck and car...darn things are on the roads more than the woods by my house so please shoot all of them you want so my vehicles are not damaged any more...
[elitud leinad] - Yes, I hunt for meat, if it's brown it's down.
[snave evad] - yes i would,and yes i have
[kaep eimaj] - Only when my buck to doe ratio is out of whack. Right now I see three bucks to one doe. This has been like this for the last two years.
[rehtneug yrduob elocin] - In our area I would say no I would not. The reason is you are not just killing one deer you are killing whatever fawns she would have. Gotta keep the deer population high enough that I have something to shoot for years to come.
[ecoof yelir ahtnamas] - Sure, as long as you eat them.
[drabbuh mij] - Only with my camera.
[swerdna nairb] - they have backstraps, don't they?\
[llih mik] - Yes as many as I can
[strebor ecir natsirt] - No I don't believe in shooting a doe....... I believe you should shoot as many as possible!!! They are over populated where I live and are being a big nuisance.
[namrehs divad] - Only in season!!!!!!
[llibsa noemis] - yes it is all meet
[rael bor nibor] - A) Hell yes! Best tasting! And help with population management.

[nosnhoj regnisier acissej] - Yes to keep a balance
[eroom kram] - Yep i do you cant eat horns lol. Horns are just a bonus.
[rellim s divad] - Antlers are kool but doe meat is amazing
Whitetail Overload: Do YOU believe in shooting Doe?
b). No - 100th Comments
[senoj htennek] - A They are doelicious!
[eromlig aehs] - antlers are nice but they don't eat too good
[xin semaj] - Yes that's what's wrong with the deer today they are not enough does taken
[yelwaccm luap] - I only hunt does, more tender, more meat.(Mulies,in Idaho)
[nosned hteb] - And for the people who "don't like killing" do you eat meat?? At least deer hunting is a very humane way of killing animals to eat. Unlike all of the poor chickens who live their lives in a cage and are injected with hormones to make them be full grown in 2 weeks.
[rebefel idnarb] - Yes, of course! The older does need to go, you have to cull the herd, just as a farmer culls his older cows and keeps his young heifers, it's no different. Any hunter that does this only improves the bloodlines in his herd.
[hcanrehcst nhoj] - Either gender is delicious!
[akleb sivart] - a its meat in the freezer right
[strebor nosilla] - A.... meats, meat. You don't need a trophy all the time.
[ii redarts semaj] - I shoot LOTS of does. Pass on the bucks till their a little older.
[nhops nhoj] - Yes I will be for the next 2 weekends
[need drawde] - I hate does they are some sneaky bit.h$s.. A shot one in a minute..
[ollag nairb] - YOU cannot eat the horns...
[sgnimmeh elyk] - I believe it's venison
[rekrap obenyar arual] - i believe they should alternate doe and buck with each season. as long as it isnt during mating/pregnant times of the year? and if the doe is obviously with a fawn .
[llirdhguad eel] - only if I have a tag to do so ..
[sttaw darb] - a. yes: killing all the bucks destroys the genetics, especially if you concentrate on trophies. Think about it people, look at the human race where more and more women are breeding with the sickly and weak because it's the only choices they have. Humanity has suffered the same way the deer herd does.
[ztirreip leahcim] - Onlt 10s and 20s And if iam hungry. You don't think santa got that fat from McDonald hamburgers alone .
[notnih ymmij] - Yes, just for deer management.
[llebpmac .p divad] - Yes. If you eat what you kill. Don't believe on killing to kill
[yllek ekaj] - Yes. And anyone who says no is not a hunter. They are simply and trophy chaser. Manage the herd and help manage the population, keeps the buck to doe ratio higher, and you don't eat the antlers any way.
[srebla evad] - Freezers empty...what to do? Brown it's down !!!
[ogud mas] - A, only a fool would say no...
[stnuoc kcir] - Yes .... food is food never could eat the antlers no matter how long ya boil them
[eel evets] - If you have ANY idea about managing a deer herd, your answer should be yes.
I love to shoot big bucks, but I also love to eat tender venison, and to have a proper buck to doe ratio. I put at least three does in my freezer every year, plus give away at least two or three. Shooting Bubba Big Buck is the bonus for me.
[smailliw nhoj] - Who are all these idiots saying no??? Heck yes two for every buck some years three!
[kcubeor ekim] - Only between the eyes !
[iksnoguld einreb] - Why wouldn't you shoot doe? You have to manage the herd , and we allknow that the doe outnumber bucks by at least 3 to 1! And you can't eat the rack!
[silliw lihp] - Of course you do. Its called keeping the herd(s) managed and culling out the bad genes. Does eat good too. Ive passed on many bucks to shoot a doe, to keep the ratio as close as humanly possible.
[skoorb-enallips lirpa] - yes proper management includes doe as well as buck
[ssor darb] - Yes unless a fawn with spots is with her
[ittehcsat ttocs] - Yes! It's a must for proper management.
[wolram yllib] - yes yes yes yes
[nosdrahcir ymerej] - Yes... And "heard" is what you did with your ears & a noise in the past tense... pertaining to deer numbers... it's spelled HERD! Just an FYI.
[enyap nivek] - yes, lots of them, donate the meat to those less fortunate. better with a bow/then to food then a car/then drug to the ditch.
[ztirf nhoj semaj] - Yup, they eat just as good
[nworb ruhtra] - yes you have to keep a balance of the heard
[nedah nhoj] - @ John Wilkins...you were never the sharpest tool in the shed, were you?
[netsloh nivek] - It's easier to keep em on the grill that way!!
[notsnhoj mahnraf ydnic] - this is like asking if u would shoot a cow? I love my Beef !
[namleder sirhc] - yes for the sole purposes of meat and herd management of the heard
[ladiv ybbor] - yes but not if she has fawns
[renrut nadroj] - What Tank said. I have some 168 grain Hornady's that are looking for a home in something brown and furry this fall.
[elliw nartlebahcawanilomiday cin] - Have sex with them
[akors knat] - if its Brown its down. cant eat bones.
[revaew essej] - Yes meat is meat. Its conservation.
[nosnhoj yreffej] - Yes I do it helps the population
[eniwylrae nuahs] - Meats meat,cant eat the rack.
[llah kcuhc] - The smartest deer in the woods is a savvy old doe. Yes, I shoot does and they taste great.
[notelpmet eugarps adnerb] - great for deer management and also alot healthier to eat than beef.
Whitetail Overload: Do YOU believe in shooting Doe?
b). No - 150th Comments
[ruotal trebor] - yes help to keep over population
[ecap ednaloy] - food is food...love deer sausage
[tnalpal annej] - Also, we have no choice if it is a doe or a buck when we hit one with a car!!!
[tnalpal annej] - I have assisted a wild doe give birth to twin male fawns. Both were trying to come out at once. If I hadn't stopped when I saw her in the woods, all three would have been lost. I have also seen a doe who had been hit by a car that had been taken to a vet alive, and had her leg amputated. When she had recovered she was released back to her herd.
[htomliw nairb] - Venison is venison... You can't eat the horns!!
[kwahtirips eel] - Uhhhh YEAH! Ya can't eat horns!
[sivad nivek] - Yes yes yes there better to eat anyway
[ronehcit eilliw] - Absolutely, but I typically dont during first bow season here in MO. I take them during rifle season and 2nd bow season unless I really need the meat!
[aktab nala] - You cant sex a venison burger...
[stnarrat sirhc] - If its brown its down
[htims ymmot] - I be leave in killing only to eat. So yes. It eats
[nagrom ynnos] - If its brown its down✌😎
[kroy eiluj] - You betcha! Good eatin there!
[asurp nhoj] - Only if she does not have a fawn.
[sivad niltiac] - I bow hunt, so any deer close enough to shoot with a bow is GREAT!! cant eat horns, but yes they look good on the wall! I DEER hunt not BUCK hunt!
[gnik mij] - It's not only good management, it's politically correct. Who has ever questioned the gender of the beef, chicken or fish they consume? Or anything else for that matter. Find something real to be concerned about.
[reuas w werdna] - Yes, but no fawns.
[sirrub nwahs] - hell yes and anyone who doesn't, doesn't need to be hunting....cause they're fucking idiots
[rolyat ttocsiliek] - yes, unless has a fawn on her with its spots still then no!
[nosrettap kcaj] - They sure taste goooooood.
[sdleihs lehcar] - Yep....Buck or Doe equals meat on the table!
[etihw divad] - yes but not if she has a fawn
[llerraf nayr] - You have to, to sustain a healthy herd
[ecir dlanod] - A).......absolutely....keep the buck to doe ratio in balance...but let's not forget to mention they are just as delicious!!
[remarc mij] - Definitely, I shoot a doe first, then go after my buck....Unfortunately BIG SPORTS TV CELEBRITIES, have created a trophy buck mindset among many, so all you here about is how taboo it is to shoot does....
[redyns ffej] - Yes. They taste good and helps even the heard.
[oised ynohtna] - If ya dont shoot them,then the dumb bastards jump out in front of your car and cause major accidents
[eciv llib] - You can't eat em if you don't kill em first
[nosliw htrag] - a you cant eat those anlers
