    I don’t know the buck to doe ratio in SE Oklahoma but in years past when I attended the statewide ODW meetings, we were told that several land owners that owned a large percentage of ground in that area and allowed hunting would shut it down to all hunting if there was any doe season.
    What changed this year to allow doe hunts I don’t know and don’t want to speculate.
    I have friends in that area that have been asking to hunt does for years and are happy with finally getting the opportunity.

    We generally see more bucks than does, we haven't shot a does in 4 years, Not that we won't shoot them, just not seeing them. They could make it 100 doe limit wouldn't get anymore killed around here.

    I doesn't matter to me which one I get. It is all meat for the freezer. I'm more in to the waterfowl. I like the changes they made.

    Same here does are way better eating. I donate the meat from the old rutted out bucks. I head shoot all my does. Seems like when you head shoot them and they instantly hit the ground the meat quality is way better. They dont take off running and get the adrenaline pumping. I guess it's kind of like when you rile up a steer before slaughter and end up with a dark cutter. Really affects the final product.

    One thing I noticed, and some research confirmed it, was when taking head shot we almost always ended up with a rice looking white spots in the meat. Not harmful in any way but they say into comes from the heart still beating after the central nervous system shuts down from the head shot.
