Not in Florida without a special consideration permit for a "for profit" farmer.

Only with special permits in Iowa.....one farmer in the area had 250 depredation tags due to crop damage on nearly 8000 acres. Tags were specifically for doe's, no bucks.

You can, but you'll go to jail.
This is the time of year when does have babies.
Kill a doe, the fawn starves to death.

Yes

Here in Indiana depending on the county you can shoot up to 4, with over the counter permits. If your not wired on antlers, take em', there is no better table fare than 90lb doe. This is in legal season, they offer crop deperdation permits which I believe a good year round.

Would that be Napa CA, When I lived there you could not shoot does ever.Very few either sex permits and usually for jr. hunters in about 3 units state wide.You probably have Mtn. Lions to go with the deer.You would be in less trouble and easier to get a permit for the lions than the deer.
BTW that doe looks to be ready to drop a couple of fawns any minute.A Mature Blacktail buck is about hardest deer to hunt.

Grym, Have you ever thought of putting in a well balanced, albeit not large, food plot? Then you can watch momma and babies and shoot "big boy" next fall!

One of the neighbors saw a mountain lion some years ago. I haven't seen any sign of them but suspect with all the deer around, they're here also.

The only way to shoot a doe in Cali is to have a special predation permit from the dept. of fish and game. Some farmers are allowed these because of crop damage. Usually by the time you get one, you have spent more money with all the trouble than you would loose in crops.

If I was you, I would put up a screen door before fall. Much easier to shoot thru. But that is just were my mind wonders to.

That shot was taken from the screen room. Getting arrested for illegally taking game would be one thing; facing the wrath of Mrs. Grymster for shooting holes in the windows would be quite another!

All those recipe ideas from the elkburger thread really makes me want to take some game. Probably not going to shoot anything on my 1 acre property, but it sure is tempting when they come this close. We sometimes have bucks this close too. They're a bit warier, but from 15 feet and don't think it matters.

My buddy has a similar issue with wild turkeys. His wife asked it I thought it would be legal to do her sping turkey hunting with a golf club...

California Fish and game made 22 cal air rifles legal for taking turkeys for those turkeys that become a nuisance in neighborhoods. I had a school bus stop by my house in CA and the toms would run the kids off.I killed a turkey every year during the season with a Beeman 22 cal air rifle from my porch.

I'll have to look in to that. Maybe put some nuisance meat on the table.

There're turkeys roaming around work too. Lot's of people run from them. I chase 'em. When a co-worker asked about it, I came up with my THR sigline: "I'm pretty sure I could take a wild turkey in a life or death battle, but it would probably be an embarrassing spectacle."

Grymmy, I'd wait and see if she has a fawn first. If she's eating mama's prize plants, forbs and assorted flora you may not have any options if the boss sees her doing so. Archery is QUIET. CB.
