I've never shot more than 3 a year until last year because I'd only shoot what my family would eat. Well last year on our lease they wanted to shoot some does and my brother-in-law had workers that would take them so I ended up shooting 1 buck and 7 does. I did get tired of messing with 'em in a way though. If I have somebody that will come get it I have no problem popping one. I've only been in the woods once and the way it's looking I'll be lucky to get back in the woods before muzzleloader kicks in. It was way too hot that morning and my mind was made up before then I wasn't going to shoot a doe.


dont forget the button buck ;\)

On our property, we see 3-4 bucks for every doe, so given the chance we pop the does when a good shot presents itself.

I do not like taking does until it cools off to hot to mess with anything that is not going on the wall. But Yoder brothers processing was taking deer for hunters for the hungry last year and not charging any processing fee. so I took them 6 does.

Worm (or anyone else),

If someone knows of anyone who will take field-dressed does in Humphreys County, let me know. Hot weather isn't a problem as we have a professional-grade 10' x 12' walk-in cooler.

I don't know how many of you are in or near Montgomery Co., but there are three processing locations that will except deer for the FHFH program.

Check out their website. If close it is a win/win for both sides.


FDXX75

I use the program each yr with at least one extra permit that I get up here.

I really hate you.

When I worked Hump Co. I had a guy that lived on the road across from the COOP on hwy 13 that took all I could kill and all that the cars hit if fresh. Cant remember his name.

When I moved back here I ran a small ad in the local newspaper for two weeks. Got a dozen or so calls and that is where I came up the with names.

Call the Sheriff Dept. They usually have names and numbers of people wanting deer from road kills. That is your best bet.

I don't typically shoot does anymore. I used to shoot a bunch to give to folks that wanted it, but those people moved away so now, unless I start my own processing for jerky I just ain't gonna be shooting any antlerless deer. The bucks I shoot I will have processed for myself and others.
