Re: Controlling your Buck/Doe ratio
While what dce said is true anything you do can help. Last year 5 deer were taken on my property. 4 doe and 1 buck. Even if the next 95 closest deer were taken at a 50:50 ratio that still makes a few percent difference. Everything no matter how small makes some difference. The more people that believe in it, the bigger the change in overall results can be. For the last 6 or 7 years my doe harvest has far exceeded buck harvest and this year I feel that my sightings are close to 50:50 while hunting. Yes, total numbers of deer seen are down but the number of bucks seen are actually up!! A lot of smaller bucks, some better ones, and one stud. It does work, slowly but surely.
