Would I shoot the button buck?
Depends on the situation at the moment, I like deer meat and if it was close to the last day of the season and I had not been able to fill the freezer… then the answer is yes in a heartbeat… Some meat in the freezer and just need a bit more to fill it and I’m seeing does… then no... I’d shoot a doe and let the button pass.
But then I’d shoot a doe in lieu of a 10 point unless the 10 point was bigger than 160”. Doe just flat make better table fare than antlered bucks especially during and after the rut.
