if we actually took more does than trying to take those baby bucks or everything in between poor rack and mature one we would probably have a better buck doe ratio and there would be alot more chasing and activity,but i dont see all us average hunters doing that from what i can tell we just keep on taking bucks despite the rack quality,and maybe a doe or two in the end most people i talk to at end of a season usally take 1 to 2 does and tage out on the 3 bucks so thats not helping us out at all should be the other way,just my opinion thow

its not over rated its just more does so bucks dont have to choose as much or chase when your one of few dudes at saloon full of women chances are you aint gonna have to try to hard to nail one,lol about the same concept,just work on thinning does in your hunting area and i mean thinning them out,lol good luck

[note: my emphasis added above]

Really? Most people? Do you realize only a tiny number of hunters kill 3 bucks per year? Do you realize hunters in TN kill the same percent of young bucks as hunters in the "trophy state" do?
