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

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.

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