Part of quality deer management is keeping a balanced age structure and buck to doe ratio of deer on your property.
A balanced deer heard is a healthy deer heard. It is very important to note that passing on small bucks so you have a balanced age structure does not mean letting does walk. It is vital to keep a good buck to doe ratio and that probably mean shooting more does! This is not an opinion from a guy that wants to shoot bigger bucks but rather based on scientific research.
