Re: Antler Restrictions?
I have seen a huge difference and there is no doubt in my mind guys are killing bigger buck because of it.
Never been a "let them grow " kind of guy but with having over 60% of Pa deer hunters now archery hunting, I think it is imperative that we give the young bucks at least a year or two to survive.
I hear many mention you only get one tag but now that many are taking up archery, their odds are rising.
Sure scouting and woodsmanship kills deer along with a little luck, but the number one factor to me is time spent in the woods.
Guys now have more opportunity, especially with crossbows being legal and archery license sales will keep increasing from here on out.
We need to save the young ones to keep breeding and of course some of the older ones will still survive. Just not as many.
This is much more of a factor on public ground than it is private.
