Joined: 11/18/2009Are you a Trophy Hunter, Mature Deer Only Hunter, or a Meat “If it’s brown it’s down” Hunter?
I’m a Mature Deer Only Hunter. I’d love to shoot a trophy buck, but I have yet to do so. I will shoot a mature buck or doe though…no young deer for me eventhough the meat is tender as heck.Like to say Mature more than meat or trophy but it’s all about the freezer eventually for me. Not so wild about another Taxi bill for some more wall art.
Joined: 7/11/2006I’m a mature deer hunter. In my eyes any deer is a trophy but there’s something special about shooting a deer that’s lived through a few hunting seasons.

Should have an “other” choice.
and an “all of the above” choice.The end is near....
Joined: 2/2/2007yep all of the above………depending on how many tags i have left
Joined: 9/8/2010I`m a meat hunter, cann`t eat antlers.
Joined: 9/9/2004I’m pretty much a “whatever comes along” hunter, although I do have some standards. If a fawn still has spots, or is quite small and looks like a very late drop I won’t shoot it or mama. A nice, plump, full-grown doe fills the bill nicely. If I had more time to spend out there I might change things, but for now, that’s the way it is.It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.
Location: Republic of TexasA doe with a young deer gets to walk the first 3/4 of the season. When she walks by in late December, she’s going in the freezer. First part of the season, I’m wanting a heavy deer (less work, more meat)for me it depends on the day during the season and the individual hunt. I wont shoot a buck if i wouldnt hang him on the wall. Id much rather shoot mature does. That said i always save 1 tag to use on a nice fat doe fawn late in the season. Thats what i make all our roasts from. Talk about tender and delicious. After all that Im definately a meat hunter

Joined: 7/29/2011Definitely depends on the day, time of season, and empty space in the deep freeze.
Joined: 1/17/2006Im still in the blood letting stage…. probably will stay that way for a looooonnnnnngggggg time.
Joined: 10/14/2006Depends on where I’m hunting. In some areas I’m a brown and down, in other areas if it has no antlers it is toast, but bucks get a pass until they are mature…..
Joined: 5/27/2008A little bit of all three. Fawns and their mother gets a pass, as well as young bucks. Does of any age without little ones are fair game, when I’m in need of meat. Mature bucks (most wouldn’t consider any buck in my area a “trophy”) are always a target.
