Yet I would say at least 75% of first yr bucks I have observed are spikes or y's.

Your opening post is the only one I've read so far, so it may have been addressed, but... shouldn't most 1.5 yr old buck be spikes or "Y"'s ? Even in a healthy herd ?

Yearling bucks can be anything from small spikes to basket 10 points, but a good portion of yearling bucks in a balanced herd in good habitat will be basket 6 and 8 points.
