Our season ends Dec. 21st or there about so we usually don't run into that problem in NY. I once hit a doe with my truck in Feb., got a tag from trooper for the deer... she had 2 perfectly formed fawns the size of a pepsi can, buck and a doe, I felt bad but like someone said... ain't the last deer on earth and nothing I could do... gooood viddles that doe was |
The fawns I gave to a friend who is a taxidermist.

Sorry hunter didn't mean to put "the thought" in your head. |
I will probably hunt the late season again as the area we hunt has
45 crop damage permits. To quote the fellow who owns the farm and woods,
"if i see a deer go past one of your blinds and you step out a few hours later I can find four other guys to do the job"
No one is perfect what if I miss???
Nobody wants to lose there hunting spot.

I never hunted late season until this year. I never thought about that possibility but now I have mixed emotions about hunting the late season again.

|Hunting Man||I also killed a doe that had a twin set and it affected me the same way. it was like: was it right hunting late season? My thoughts are it just happens and as hunters we make our rules with-in the limits of the law and accept our own actions. I still hunt late season.|

Well now you know... i probably would've made the same mistake... but look at it like this... it's not like that was the last living whitetail doe. |
thanks for answering my question.. i wasn't trying to be a sicko about it, but was just curious. thanks again

the twins were the size of softballs.
this is a real head trip for me but it just goes to show how lack of
thought can cross your eyes!
It was lawful and "in season" but thoughts linger.

yeah that's kinda what I thought daddus... this doe must of had a late-born fawn that she was still nursing. spoiled brat!!! |
Not to sound gross and sorry to offend anyone, but daddus, how large was the fawn in that doe you shot? Just wondering how big the fawn "fetus" was at that stage in the pregnancy. It amazes me how fast fawns grow into full grown deer.

|daddus1||I would think that the remaining milk would be her simply nursing a late or "spoiled" fawn. We have all seen the kid that is 2 years old still chewing on the bottle. Just a thought!|
