There has been so much written on how big bucks get big I sometimes wonder why there have only been 2 #1 typical bucks in something like 100 years. Jorden (spell)and Hanson bucks. Bucks have to have excellent Genetics to ever have a chance of growing world class racks. Nutrition then has to be perfect during the entire season and the then the buck needs to be able to repeat it for 5-6 years. How much is genetics and nutrition and luck? I think my own take would be something like 40% genetics, 40% nutrition, and 20% luck. TG, I think it would be hard with limited land to ever really make any significant improvement in buck quality. However, I can think of no reason not to plant quality forage for the deer especially in a nutrient lacking high deer density environment.
