Ladyhunter, before I got married, my wife to be and I once raised two pigs and, of course, she gave them names and we fed and cared for them. When it came time to slaughter the hogs, she predictably would not eat anything from them. I, on the other hand, ate the hams, bacon, etc. with gusto.
It is the same with deer or any animals. My take on it is the animals were given to man for food and, being the predator that man naturally is by nature, I enjoy eating the meat from animals I kill, butcher, and cook.
So, I may well put an arrow through both of the twins when they are mature and ready to be harvested, if some eager beaver "if it's brown, it's down" hunter does not get them first. Afer all, I shot their mother with my bow on October 29 last year with one twin standing on either side of her. So I have no mental reservations about shooting these two deer IF the situation is a proper one AND I need the food. I only hunt for food, not for antlers nor merely for sport. Thus I can and often do let deer walk. I let deer walk without shooting them 45 times on my land last year, including the twins several times thereafter even though both were "legal" deer under our laws.
These twins roam through the subdivision regularly and one of my hunting partners told me yesterday he is leaving them alone for now but come fall he will shoot them if he gets the chance. So they may not make it to maturity as the "hood" I live in has a lot of people in it, including the hunting buddy I mentioned, that shoot every deer they see.
I would not shoot either of them for another 3 years at least. I prefer to let deer mature, and selectively harvest the deer as needed for good herd management. Unfortunately, I only control my 20 acres so there is not much I can do except try to make my land a sanctuary for the younger deer and control the hunting pressure here.
Here is a couple of photos of the twins about a week after I shot their mother.
