PA's rifle season for doe is scheduled after the fawns are self sufficient.They are following their mother around,maybe even their grandmother also,but they are able to survive at that age.Their mothers often chase them away for awhile during the November rut.

In PA we used to have separate buck and doe seasons.Now we have combined seasons.On certain days you can take a buck and a doe or either one.You have to tag one before you take the second one.

3212: Makes sense you should have to take them one at a time.

Here in MO, we can shoot does during any season. If I take one I take one right after the regular portion of firearms season. The longer you wait the more likely you'll be shooting a doe with a fawn inside. I don't like to shoot them during the rut (but I have before) because there may be a buck trailing behind them.

I know what it feels like to take a Bass, when they are full of eggs. Bothers me. I like the idea of letting the species grow MORE species. Would break my heart to find a Doe that I shot had a baby inside. Any way to be sure that you aren't gonna do that?

Yep shoot them during the pre-rut. Fawns can live on their own by that time.

It's just that there seems to be something unwise and unethical about taking a nursing Doe, is all.

By pre-rut they aren't nursing still- and if they are, the fawn can live with out it.

Understood. So I'll just have to time things correctly, (hoping that the hunting season for Doe coincides with that as well).

Open sights

My gun has a rail that the scope mounts to that allows me to sloide on and off the scope without disturbing my zero and is also an over under type deal.Its hard to explain but on guam often the deer will pop up in close range making it difficult to find them in a high powered scope which I have.So I mostly rely on my open sights and practice them as much as possible.something like this.Mine is a Saiga .308 semi.
