yeah, i'm going to try hard and pass on does until gun season or late doe season. My numbers aren't bad, but would like to see more does than what we have. We have an over abundance of young bucks. it's rediculous
Missouri is having a tough time with CWD and my county (Randolph) along with 5 other counties are considered "containment" zones. We did have a 4 point on one side antler rule, but that has been lifted in our 6 counties. They think the CWD is prodominate in bucks. Anyways, there are some young bucks that I can tell have bad genes so I may take them out this year. I have ALOT of really young 8 and 10's,,,, i'm talking 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 year oldS!!!!!!! They are sprouting everywhere-- also with the antler restriction lifted, they say that we can no longer put out salt or mineral or any type of feed that concentrate deer to one area. Anyways, I haven't seen any CWD in my county at all. There has been alot of blue tongue going around and have heard of 2 cases where a total of 12 deer were found dead from it.
good luck to ya buddy
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
