I seem to have missed it the last few years. I have seen a ton of does in the last two weeks and nothing following.

When was the first part of rut?

I normally don't shoot does but I may go on a killing spree. I still have friends and family that want meat.

So what is wrong with killing a doe that has been bred? I see no difference than killing a buck that breeds the does. There are plenty of does out there.... Sir if you have does tags shoot away. Fill that freezer!

I was out at a piece of private land I hunt out near perdido today and their were a bunch new scrapes and tons of fresh running tracks on and around the plot, none of which were there last week.

Why is that? There is a reason why season goes to March and a reason why there are tags issued out. And honestly I bet most of the does haven't been bred yet either. Just like up North their rut is during November and some states have late doe season in December and early January.

I watched a young buck dog some does yesterday morning on the way to work. Also seen another buck walking nose to the ground on the shoulder of the road. I think that was Tuesday..

Harvest them if it's legal. Nothing's wrong with killing a doe this time of year. That's one of the ways state agencies track breeding patterns in the deer is by collecting data off of harvested does particularly late in the year. If your lease has tags fill em.

My grandfather killed one on the last day of Gun season and dad said his neck was'nt swelled, but he had been pee'ing on his leg alittle bit.. So it might be just starting in Black water when Black powder gun starts.

In reference to comment above I think it goes without saying that you don't go crazy with it because can mess up the herd demographics if you over harvested doe late in the season over time.

Not harvesting does right now because they may be bred makes no sense at all. You could just as easily say don't shoot does at all because they may "GET" bred.
