    There is no such thing as "doe" and "buck" in Michigan regulations... "antlerless" and "antlered"

    Yes. But in college football terms, you may want give the button heads a redshirt a year or three so you can use your antlered tags on them later. Why waste those tags right?Win win for your whole hunting experience. Trust me.

    Yep. They still got that milk flavor. Just before you take the hero shot make sure to wipe the milk from its lips :)

    Just joking around...

    If I’m gonna shoot a deer and go through the regiment of gutting, hauling out, processing, etc etc etc. You better dam know it’s gonna be for more than one grill session and a couple leftovers.

    Is funny how we harvest domestic animals, sheep and goats, at the same age as the button buck. I have never heard a commercial meat processor or buyer say, "You should of given this lamb another year" I haven't shot them, yet, but I have a couple running around that are close to the size of adult does. By thanksgiving you will have to look carefully to make sure the biggest doe in the field isn't a button.
