I generally like to kill does during bow season and early mz season in Ky. Mostly during bow season because i get trigger happy with the bow.

I usually try to stay away from killing does during rifle because usually the ruts in full swing and i like to stay incognito as possible. After the shot, i have to bring the 4 wheeler or truck to pick it up, i know they probably dont pay as much as attention as i think but i guess it makes me feel better about little pressure as possible in the area.

I got 3 people wanting a deer, and with only 1 buck tag i guess i have no choice but to shoot a few does. Will probably try to do it early as possible and get it over with. It will be fun doing it though

Its not what happens in life, but how you react to it that matters.

I usually bust does in bow season too. My past experience on the property I hunt is that when I kill a doe, the rest of the does in tha group get skidding for several days. I don't want the does being skidding during any rutting activity so I usually try to take tem early or very late in the season.

If I need meat I shoot one in bow or mz. I like having the does on my property so I don't bust 'em just because I can...I have four kids, three sons and a daughter, all grown...My sons and I try to get one for my daughter when she runs low on venison too.

I kill them when they step within range.
Turkey hunting, the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

We killed 7 on 180 acre lease with bows and they are still everywhere. Some would have died today if things had gone right.

Ever since I got a great backstrap recipe!
I hunt and fish not for the thrill of the kill, but for the thrill of the grill!!
