So I'm not seeing man bucks on my cam this year ( 1 to be exact ). I'm going to bow hunt really close to my home this year ( instead of deeps woods ). So my question is, I've got plenty of Does hitting my trophy rock....just want opinions on taking one early, or should I wait and see if they bring any of the big boys in

I'd shoot one or two to get some kills under your belt.

First time bow hunter then yeah definitely whack a doe if you can! One or two early shouldn't hurt the rut hunting later if you back out and quit hunting after a doe or two

Take the first one you can! Once you take one with your bow, hunting as you know it will forever change ;\)

Yeah, you can shoot at a target all day long and get real good. But it's a whole different ballgame when you shoot at a deer. Just shoot some does and get any stand hunting kinks worked out first. By then, maybe some bucks have moved into your area.. Good Luck!

Yeah, shoot one early to get the monkey off your back, you will see how different it is when it's a deer instead of a tgt. That way you sort of know what to expect once a buck steps out in front of you

Shoot them slicks. Meat in the freezer, builds your skill as well as confidence in yourself, best learning experience out there is out smarting a mature doe, and greatly helps to keep the buck to doe ratio in balance and well as helping to keep the carrying capacity of the land in check thus providing a healthier herd and increases the need for a buck to move in search of a doe to breed resulting in a better chance for you to see one. 20 years ago it was considered dang near a sin to shoot a doe and in return you now have places with a 3 a day limit cause there is now a need to get the balance back in check.
