My family has 130 acres that we have been hunting since the late 90's.

when we first started hunting this place the deer numbers were alot lower than now. We would see ten, maybe 15 deer a year. BUT, the bucks we saw were MUCH bigger than now.

On most hunts now we see about 6 to 8 does and a spike or two. We have let bucks walk, and walk, and walk. Ofcourse we dont know what the neoghbors are taking.

Anways, to the point, should we be harvesting more does? Seems like since our population has gotten bigger the bucks have gotten smaller?
