You are exactly right. I've seen several posts on here bragging about the number of bucks they've killed and they post pictures of 4 points and small 6s, then gripe in their next post that they aren't seeing any big bucks. Duh, not only are you killing the small bucks before they have a chance to grow but you are shooting the first buck you see when quite possibly a bigger one could be coming down that same trail 30 minutes later. It's happened to me many times.I see all these picture on here of small racked bucks people shoot, which may be why your only seeing spikes.
The cow horns need to be eliminated from the herd.
Gotta let'm grow
You'll drive somewhere that doesn't allow someone to shoot 10 deer a year.. When I wanna hunt horns, I'll jump in my truck and drive somewhere that I can do that.
If he makes it until next season that will probably be a nice looking deer next year. Heck he looks a little fat..... or husky :laughing:I thought this picture posted this morning when I astarted this thread. He sure was close to being legal, but I don't take chances any more.
