This is an uneducated guess but it seems to me the does might taste less 'gamey'.

Did you mean to say there is or is not a difference in the doe meat when they are in heat.

Bullet,

Wishing you luck and a great hunt in January! And those are some fine pictures you have taken. I also have a love for taking wildlife pictures as well as hunting. Actually I spend much more time with the Camera than I do with the gun. Here are a couple of them.
Once again good luck and let us know how you do!
03

Thanks John, it is a little harder at times.

I've never hunted but one thing I was taught is never take a Buck if he's not bigger than your last/first.

Mad respect.

You know, I am hoping that same thing and that would really be cool.
