i know that there is no correlation with neck swelling and tarsal gland secretion. none that i know of anyway. of course we all know that the buck practices fighting and builds neck muscles but i was thinking to do some reading on the size of the neck due to hormones and the production of tarsal gland attractant. i can't find much information about this. like i said, i just noticed neck/tarsal glands this year. i cleaned my first deer in 1969.

edit: typo on that year, 1989. hell, there were no deer in coffee county in 1969
