Didn't they put some antler requirements in place a few years ago? I assume that will help, or is helping, also.
Yeah, I don't know exactly when that happened. Honestly, I don't know how many people actually follow the rule. There's a lot of camps shooting spikes, deer with screwed up racks, 6 points of certain ages, etc... Which is suggested by biologists.
I grew up in a camp that had a 4 on one side and at least 15 inch spread requirement. It was just enough to learn how to hunt and have fun with it, but also taught me some patience.
I live/hunt in the Delta Zone, btw.
