    Taking doe early.

    One of my buddies told me not to shoot doe early season because it will lower my chance at taking a Buck. How true is this?

    I have never heard that before and don't see how it can be true. Shouldn't matter. I plan on getting a doe or two in the early season.

    only way that can be an issue if you ask me, would be if you have very very low deer numbers
    reason being if you have very few doe on your lands, and you kill one, that is one less to attract bucks later on
    as in if you don't have any doe, the bucks might leave your lands looking for them later on
    but its rare to have that problem
    having fewer doe, can bring /make more bucks look harder to find one on your lands, making it maybe more likely to catch one in day time looking for love later on
    I say if a good shot presents itself, and you want to fill a tag or freezer, go for it, no harm will be!

    I agree with mrbb!!! If you have enough does taking one shouldn't matter much.
    Enjoy your hunt- the long sit......... the cold.......the rain and snow......the peace and quiet, it may just be your last hunt........... you never know.
