He'll eat very well for sure. I've never understood the logic behind using inside spread as a legal gauge ??????? If he doesn't look directly at you then it's just a guess. I was hunting on a Game Ranch out of Del Rio once and just about to pull the trigger on a very tall and heavy tined buck UNTIL he looked at me and, much to my surprise he couldn't have been 6" inside. :banghead: However, before he looked at me, he was a wall hanger. :dont: :scratch: :banghead:

Man, no kidding. You have to be able to measure length/width using your eyes or scope from a distance... have ink pen to fill out tag, something to affix the tag to the deer.... some ranches have price tag on ear to scan for payment by CC :roll:

Must leave a fully feathered wing or head when transporting migratory game birds and on and on !!! Its gettin to a point you need a legal expert to accompany you and read regs as you are shooting.

mostly done by the wildlife biologist recommendations, combined with the law makers.

This is correct. The Game Wardens are just there to enforce the laws they are given.

She was a young doe but somewhere, had a fawn. It was not with her anywhere when I pulled the trigger. Maybe a bobcat claimed it? I dunno, there are some around, and big ones too. I saw a cat not far from my house a few weeks back that I first thought was a Maine Coon, but when he spooked, I saw no tail at all.. :dont: The venison has been fantastic so far. I've yet to come across anything with a heavy game flavor that wasn't brined before cooking. And yessir, that was a crow. Lol! Darn corn thieves. These little buggers will make quick work of a pile of corn; faster than pigs, that's for sure. 15 crows will knock down a 10lb pile in about 2 hours. I watched it happen the day I took that pic. This guy was the straggler nabbing the crumbs. Lol!

If she did have a suckling, she might have hid it because she sensed danger. We had a Doe that used to come on our land in Leon County in front of the house and hide her babies for some unknown reason. We knew better than to touch the fawns, even tho we could easily get close enuff to pet them many times. NOTE: The Fawns are born with no odor that can be detected by predators at an early age so our scent on them from petting could become deadly.

One of my Favorite ways to eat young Bambis is to Grill large cubes of the prime cuts as K-Bobs with peppers, own-yawns, cherry maters and squashes while basting with Zesty Italian Dressing.

Overcooking makes for shoe leather :tup: :banghead:
