+1 to all the "meat first" comments. I hunt on/near family farms and deer are considered crop-eating varmints. Taking out the does not only culls the herd better but 2-3 young doe yield less, but tastier meat IMO. Sure, it I see a nice buck, I'll take him...but I never pass on a young doe.

I'm hunting a Whitetail with a Giant Rack myself, BUT I never have the paintince to get one. When I see a Decent 8-point that is probally bigger than my last one or really close I'll take him..... but I also hunt in a 2 Buck 3 Doe county where if you need to fill 2 tags in a day it wouldn't be much of a problem.

I'd love to shoot a trophy bull or buck, but I'm a meat hunter at heart and will shoot the first legal animal that presents a good target.

The Taxadermist might tell me to leave if I brought in a trophy dove.
