Doe week is GONE!
« on: November 20, 2008, 11:13:34 PM »
I missed doe week. Last year it was over thanksgiving weekend, but this year THEY MOVED IT BACK A WEEK!!!!! I hadn't even noticed, and now I have one day to shoot ONLY 1 legal doe. Talk about a major bummer. I feel so sick. I wanted to haul in at least 5 this year! :uglystupid2 :uglystupid2 :tickedoff :tickedoff

And that's why they teach people how to read in grade school.  So people can READ what the season dates are ahead of time. :roll: :wink:

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Do I detect a little bit of greed here?  five deer ??
We are glad to have gotten one young doe this year( wife did it). I still have a tag left but it needs to be a buck.

Well, every hunt I'd been on since bow season(legal to take does) when I was only allowed to shoot bucks had seen at least 3 does in at 15 yards, so it was looking like a realistic goal...a deer a day.  It aint so much greed as a responsibility to the wildlife since we are getting seriously over-populated with does. In order to manage out this herd to what most would consider "healthy"- even a 1:4 buck/doe I'd need to take about 10-15!

In this suburban herd, yes. During archery season you are allowed 2 does a day(for about 1 month) then during doe week you can take one a day with any weapon you choose. While I could safetly shoot the 870 at these deer, the neighbors would not appreciate it in the slightest, so I use my bow all deer season long.
