My personal rule is I never shoot a doe with a fawn with it. I don't have an issue with those that do, especially to put needed meat in the freezer. But if we are being honest, a very low percentage of hunters are hunting for that reason alone. Otherwise they could buy lots of meat for a lot less than they spend on hunting. My opinion is that if it's lawful means and you want to shoot it, go for it. I try to only kill large does if I take one. We have a lot more bucks on our property than we do does so I'm selective on the does I shoot.

I have killed more axis does than I can count and never, not once, did they not have a fetus in them. Suckers are prolific.
