Congrads on sticking a deer although I beg to differ on does tasting better. I've had bucks that were older and very excellent. I think it has more to do with what they eat and how long you take to cool the meat down. Getting the heat out is so important. I've seen guys with deer in the back of the truck in September with the hide still on and flies all over it and then they wonder why their meat is "gamey". Anyways there are definately plenty of deer this year so good luck if you come.
