Yep, you can't eat the horns!  ;)

Besides, doe meat is sweeter... ;)

And once they get real big they eat a ton but only produce 1 or maybe even 0 fawns each year.  As I understand it, this is primarily why harvesting big does is a common practice in land management.

Thanks guys....sound like you all are my kinda hunters!! can't eat them horns. However, I do have a bet w/ a few buddies and my brother this year...total points....but it has to be three or better on one side. Spikes...Minus 2....y buck...minus 4 and so on. As long as there are three on one side...it counts to our total points. Does are no penalty...That's where I come in. :rifle: :rifle: The loser buys dinner...and these guys aren't talking McDonald's so i better not finish last!!!! Hada a great season last year...best ever. 4 bucks and 11 does. 3 bucks were spikes and the other was a broken horn. Trying to top that this year. Believe me, we eat it all. We butcher everything ourselves...grind some for burger and chile meat...make Italian sausages and variations there of w/ pork, jalepeno pepper, sharp provolone, broccoli rabe, roasted garlic...and of course our sweet. We save pretty much everuything....shoulders for crock pot dishes (similar to pulled pork) and even the ribs. We have a little bit left from last season as the total for us was 27 between 4 of us. Can't get enough venison!! Good luck to everyone and I'll keep you posted on the harvest.
Thanks

Spots.... are you kidding man that is like veal.. nice and tender.. just not a lot of meat..   :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
I do know one recipe for bucks.  antler stew. you use the horn to stir the stew..   ;D ;D :laugh: :laugh:  You got to have a balance harvest to keep the herd healthy period.....  and if you opt for  a doe or a buck doesn't matter should be a personal thing.  look at PA rules 6 pt or better, and now everyone is gunning the prime herd buck and all you see is little spikes and tons of does....  Needs to be balanced.....oh well happy hunting everyone and be safe out there this season.

BDC,I got a grinder\sausage maker for x mas last year and wanna try sausage making this year.Where do you get the casings?Saw some in cabellas but don`t know which ones to get,alot of option`s.summer sausage,baloney......where to start.Was also gonna convert an old freezer into a smoker to handle the volume of meat.Thank`s for any advice on getting started.
Don`t dry your hand`s on the cat.Seemed like a good idea at the time!

The rule here in PA is not 6 points or better. It has to have atleast 3 on one side. I got a 5 point last year, 3 on one 2 on the other. Not trying to start a fight just wanted to elaborate. I am one of the few here in central PA (not near the herd we had 15 yrs ago) that shoots does. THe way I see it hte meat is the same minus the horns when it gets to my stomach. And around where I hunt in state forest land you take what you see. That buck was the 2nd one I have seen there in 7 years.  ???
