I am a victim of the current economy. I am an avid whitetail hunter an follow all my states laws. Although I hunted hard throughout the 3 seasons [Archery Shotgun and Blackpowder] I did not score
Currently I have a choice of paying the rent and utilities or buying food. To cold here in New England this time of the year to be homeless or without heat. So here is my question I have had 8-14 deer coming thru my yard a few times a week since the season ended. One night last week a neighbor counted 8 Bucks in the group. Besides the "law" how many of you would think it is wrong to take one of the bucks if I can get a CLEAN shot at him with my bow. I know that in a few weeks they will drop their antlers, and I sure do not want to take a doe. So should I or shouldn't I do it now while I can still be certain it is a buck I take. Not to piss anyone off but please dont respond with go to a food pantry, been there and the only thing you get is canned veggies and rice no meat except a pre-cooked chicken or two thats at least 5 days past its sell date. I never thought I would even think of doing this but I feel I must if I want to eat.
