Re: HOW IS THE ANTLER RESTRICTIONS WORKING FOR YOU
There's more bigger bucks I believe in the area, I must just not be good enough to get em yet! but what I am seeing, is more spikes and small sub-legal bucks making it through the heat of the rifle seasons. So I know there are a fair amount of 1.5 yr old bucks making it through the season, which was the purpose of AR, not necessarily the purpose which many make it out to be as being "BIGGER BUCKS AROUND EVERY TREE!". It's to even out an age structure. So far this year, i've seen at least 4 or 5 different spikes that before AR would have definately gotten wacked. I have a cousin that had to pass on a 4 pt at 20 yards on saturday that surely woulda been wacked if pre ar, then WAMPIRE passed on a 4pt that woulda gotten a slick trick through his chest if pre ar. So yeah, AR is working, more 1.5 year old bucks are making it through to their 2nd year.
