I hunt in Ohio and in a county that allows only one deer per year...buck or doe. I've passed on does early the last two years waiting on a buck during the rut and ended up eating tag soup. Didn't have shots at does during the late season either. Would you rather shoot a doe early or take the chance on a buck? I'd have to find land to hunt in another county and drive the miles to take another deer. Secondly, what is your opinions on shooting does after the rut when your pretty sure they've been bred? Just wondering.
