That is where you are wrong. Basic QDM is let the young ones walk.


Good catch S'n'S!

Not all small-antler bucks are young. Two years ago we took a 4 1/2 year-old buck from my property that was a fork-horn grossing 71 3/8.

This deer was 6.5 years old.... back picture to display body size, but you can see the rack size, weight was 205 dressed.

I would like to know that also. I gave surrounding property owners QDMA memberships for Christmas.

Jeeezzz! You have to be very careful when you chose your words here dont you? Small Stuff(who said small antlered?), Young Ones? Thats what I mean bud! Same thing. Just saying it rather casualy you know. "Let the small stuff walk". Try saying it to yourself outloud. Fun wasnt it. I didnt make it up. I've heard it before. And now look, I understand how to age a deer(jawbone,body language, the build of the body,trail pics from years past,etc.)I dont age my deer by there antlers, for the reason BSK mentioned above. Sometimes the young ones surprise you and go big. Sometimes the old ones just dont. But hey I will argue that in general, a bucks rack will give you a decent quick estimate of his age. For the most part a spike on my properties is young and the solid 10 pt is probably a mature deer. There are exceptions (Such as a 71 inch fork horn 4 1/2 year old bucks). If I have someone Im bringing out to one of my farms its easier to say let the small stuff walk. They understand this. I dont need to explain QDM and ageing deer to them. Stick n String, I assume by your name you are a bow hunter. I see you are loc. in Nash. I bow hunt only, several farms in Williamson Co., I would like to invite you Bowhunting. I would like you to see the kind of farm my "wrong" methods of QDM have produced. I don't think we should be nit picking here. As long as everyone is on the same general page the Tn deer herd will improve. I think getting the average weekend hunter to pass on a YOUNG deer in favor of a mature one is a large important step. Let the YOUNG stuff walk ya'll.(To clarify "stuff" is the tennessee whitetail deer)

Didn't mean to sound like we are jumping on you HunterHaas, but as somewhat of a QDMA spokesman, I've learned the hard way that something I say can be taken out of context and spread all over. I've learned to be very precise about my statements.

If you want to start a QDMA Branch, contact the QDMA Regional Director. For TN, that would be Tom Goodhue.

Hunterhaas,

Like Bryan said I was just stating the obivious as not everyone understands what is implied by saying let the small ones walk. My post wasn't intended to be an attack just clarifying your point as to what QDM is all about.

PS.
I'd be happy to come hunt with you anytime.
