your wife has some tips used by no doubt the old timers that cooked venison alot. i have heard a few of them. but alot of young hunters and their wives dont know them if they were not passed down. you think your wife would tell us some stuff she does to the meat to get some of the gamey taste out. if you could make us a new thread titled somthing like "How to make an old buck taste great" myself and others would greatly appreciate it.

i have heard the one about soaking it in milk over night. i did that with a roast from a mountain buck one time and could not tell that it helped. your wife do that?

Shoot a doe if ya want some good meat.. Young bucks are good eating too. But let those little fellers grow up to big wall mounting beauties... Just a suggestion

Yeah Mr. Signman you got it. Just think about the number of deer that fall victims to vehicles year round. Some are trophys and some are not. But nobody can decide what their going to kill with their vehicles it just happens. Before this lady told me not to shoot the does because they are the mother deer but a couple days later she hit and killed a doe with her truck. I said "what I can't harvest a doe hunting it but you can run one over and kill it". I don't know if this post makes sense to anybody but thinking about that weirds me out. Anyways, Lever think of this if you do shoot a smaller buck you give that big breeder buck another day to run the country side making more deer for us right. And more deer for that dumb lady to wreck her vehicles with. LOL

"In fact, ALWAYS shoot a spike, unless you're in a club that still lumps spikes in with branched-antlered bucks, which is incorrect but that's a discussion for another time."

I used to follow that same rule myself until I saw a study by Dr. Deer and Charlie Alshiemer that blows the myth about spikes completely out of the water. They studied a herd of bucks, half had spikes as a first set of horns and the other have had forks or better for their first. Not only did both classes grow to impressive sizes but two of the spikes grew the largest racks later in life. I'll try and find the info and put a link here.

Y'all have already said about everything I would, but - - -

LAHunter's #3 & #4 seem to be a couple of awful good reasons for legally shooting anything you have a tag for.
