I was thinking the same thing, decimating the herd is kindof harsh I would think. Thought HR was done by doe being killed? Herd shouldn't be affected by shooting young bucks, unless guys are worried a SR may shoot "your" trophy in the next couple years. The law isn't saying that the SR's have to shoot a young buck, just gives them the opportunity if they want it. I think the only thing this hurts is the AR proponants who want huge bucks, so there will be a few less.
