My apologies for being late on posting on this topic.
When to shoot does: early and often, anytime and often, late in the season and often
Shoot does with fawns: same as above. By the time hunting season rolls around fawns are able to fend for themselves.
My hunting spot is not the best for QDM. First off, it's 3 hours away and it's not exclusively mine. It is very flat and open....difficult for bowhunting.
I've been fortunate to have good success the last 6 years (1-2 deer per year), but did not kill a deer my first 5 years out there.
My point is, I'm not too picky when it comes to shooting does (or any non-fawn for that matter) out there. I would like to start passing up young bucks, but like I said, it's awful hard with my scenario.
If I owned my own land, I'm sure I'd have no problem implementing QDM.
