Joined: 7/15/2007I have and I will again…tomorrow if I get a chance. And maybe the fawns too…a guys gotta eat.
Those fawns are getting booted away from their mamas here pretty soon anyhow. They are completely self sufficient at this point.

Joined: 11/1/2005I have, twice, but it doesn’t make me feel too good. If I do it, I prefer to do it in the late season. But this year, with the lack of does I am seeing, they may get a pass.
Joined: 6/22/2004Heck ya! Early season I rarely see a mature doe without at least one fawn that could be hers. Now if they’re still in spots I might reconsider. But I haven’t seen that in several years.
Joined: 4/19/2008I voted no because it depends on the age of the fawns. If they still have spots then definitely not. They need mom still to survive. If they have lost their spots then their old enough to take care of themselves and then I probably would. I’m a hunter like the rest of you.I voted no as I consider a fawn as one with spots. Once the spots are gone I do not discriminate on which one I shoot..Express yourself now - Fortune cookie

Joined: 10/3/2006If they have lost the spots she gets shots, lol

Need to shoot the big mature momma doe before she can pass on all her being hunted knowledge to the youngsters.I wont, but have once before. The first deer I ever shot with a rifle had Twin fawns…not spotted though. When I went to retrieve her the fawns where standing by her side. That broke me. I have no problem with others doing it…just a personal choice.
Location: Upstate NYAbsolutely. And if there is a buck with them, unless it’s a wall-hanger, the doe goes down. It’s relatively rare for fawns to be carrying spots this time of year in our neighborhood. If they are, my money says that they’re real small. Fawns aren’t on the menu till the last few days of the season and by then spots will definitely be gone.
