When I butchered a goat I used a .22 pistol and placed the shot just behind the skull. It instantly severs the spinal cord and they go down immediately.

About the smell, I wouldn't think it would be any different than an archer taking a bull elk in rut. They get pretty rank too and their ladies love it just as the does do. We are very careful to make sure that while skinning none of the exterior of the hide touches the meat. The same goes for antelope. To keep the meat from tasting gamey the exterior hide never touches the meat. I haven't had experience with the antelope but I have helped field dress many elk and never had a gamey taste. Really don't know if it would work for a buck but it seems it would.
