People would be surprised how much it helps to talk to adjoining landowners and hunters about a big buck program. You'll get more cooperation then some would think. If not then as Lee Lakosky says " don't be part of the problem, be part of the solution." You'll never have a chance at a big one if you shoot it when it's young.

I just wish we could get everyone on board to practice QDM on our lease. The deer that need passing are the ones that are getting killed on our lease. We have a 8pt or better rule but most 8pt that get killed are 2.5 year old. Are a lot of the hunters in that area planting food plots in the fields?



Too bad, 8 points or better rule has NOTHING, NOTHING, NOY A THING to do with QDM.
it is a very,very good start

When we started ours it was don't shoot it unless your mounting it. Over the years we killed so many everyone knew what we should and shouldn't be killing. Juvenile hunters could shoot whatever.

I wonder in all of these threads killing predators such as coyotes is never mentioned as part of a QDM plan? What's your take on it?


I kill EVERY coyote I see! or try to at least!

I trap my places for coyotes after season.. Probably start in about 2 weeks. I usually trap until mid May. I can see a difference on one place. Trapped 5 off of it in Feb. and March last season. Haven't seen a yote on it this year. I believe they kill more fawns than most think.

I think the Coyotes should be on everybody's mind trying to do qdm. Improving your herd takes a lot of thought and other things besides Which deer you shoot. Don't get me wrong we practice the mature bucks or deer you want to mount way, but it takes a much bigger plan than just that.

I would say we practice QDM pretty well on my place, but we don't specifically target coyotes. That's not to say trapping/killing coyotes doesn't have benefit (it can), but I wouldn't say coyote management is a necessary or even critical part of QDM.

Thanks BSK for your advice, I'm probably wrong but I have just always thought the less amount of predators the better off you would be.
