I will typically not shoot the large doe after a few weeks she and her remaining fawns will return to the spot, I like to kick off the season with a nice fawn on the roaster better then veal more tender too easier drag etc etc better for the herd to take out old does that are not breeding anymore
I dont shoot doe's that have spotted fawns. This moron I know took his crossbow out at his place and killed the first 2 does he saw in early season 2 years ago, the 3 fawns then sat in his garden and ate all his plants for the next month or so. I got a kick out of seeing them there EVERY single time I went by, they had zero fear of humans too.
It depends on how emotional I'm feeling that day.just kidding! I usually don't make up my mind until it happens but if I want some meat for the freezer and she's the size I'm looking for with a good shot I'm letting one fly.
