Let's all take the high road and dump a load in the middle of our hunting property so the guy next door can't shoot deer. Hmmm! Is it me or is somebody missing the point here? Just asking! I think, I will exercise a little self control and discipline instead. I'm wondering, is shooting an older, mature, and fawn-less doe better herd management? Logic and common sense would seem to tell a hunter that if you shoot a doe with triplets, the fawns chance of survival is reduced. Which in turn would lead to a greater reduction in overall deer numbers, a concern that seems to be a hot topic these days. And, make sure you call in those pre-light shots that are over a mile away with a full description of the party involved, exact location and time because you illuminated your cell phone, made the call, and spoke to a sherif while on stand in the predawn. No chance of giving your location away to every critter in the woods. OK then!

Usually one guy or maybe him and a buddy....sad really. At least gun hunters know how to be a family and enjoy the hunt/outdoors. And if that means shooting fawns at least they had fun and got a deer...isn't that what its all about?
