    I took a doe whitetail on my property last year on the last day of the season-after chasing bucks for weeks. The crossbow was very lethal and accurate. (And didn't disturb the neighbors. Guns are legal in the county, but I know that I don't appreciate it when I hear a big bore got off amongst the houses.)

    Looks tasty. We can’t hardly kill a doe on public land in my state. Be happy you can shoot meat.

    That’s a long drive. The upside is our deer taste like beef down here. Like our ducks. Everybody thinks I’m talkin manure until they come down and try them and then presto, they think they are crazy too.

    I am playing with a hypothesis that fescue gives meat a gamey flavor.

    The deer I hunt there’s no fields for miles only mature hardwoods, I’ve killed bucks in full rut and all season long and have never had a gamy tasting deer ever

    I shot the stinkiest rutting Mule deer about 5 years ago in Idaho. Everyone complained about the smell of those quarters. My pack still hasn't recovered.

    That venison was fantastic. Everyone who ate it raved about it.
