Just don't expect 170-class bucks to be a "normal" result. That buck is truly exceptional, and certainly not normal.

I agree.

But would you agree we could have many times more 140-plus 4 1/2 & older bucks if we weren't killing most of them as 90-110-class 2 1/2's?
Or killing them even sooner when they're 8-point yearlings?


Yes, I agree with that.

That's pretty funny Wes, but might actually be true! \:\)


Ha. I told my brother this same thing the other week.

It certainly is a big chunk, but most of it is unaccessable due to the rugged terrain.

Not necissarily a bad thing String Music. Gives them places to hide and you get to hunt then on the fringes (I know you know this based on posts).

Sounds like my land but just about 15 times bigger! My land is super thick and I notice every year, the bucks move into this de facto sanctuary as the fall progresses. I'm actually going in to "rethincken" some of the areas this winter to improve browse and cover...but much smaller patches than what it was/is.

Anyways, fantastic buck and congrats on the 8 pt. I'm impressed with your ability to stay on them while going through law school. My work this year has been nonexistent on my land.

Good idea. Although I don't have enough data to show the trend clearly enough (yet), the number of different bucks that use my property each deer season appears to be closely tied to the percent of the property in sanctuary cover. As that percentage has risen and fallen over the years, the number of individual bucks using the property during hunting season has risen and fallen in parallel.

I agree,but you should have plenty of cover from all the select cut you have been doing the last couple years,wonder why a "down" year this year?
