There is just something about bucks that lures people in. Especially young or inexperienced hunters will always opt for the buck over a doe if they have the choice. I have had the opportunity to introduce many hunters to the sport and when asking what they want to shoot the answer is 100% of the time a buck. It is neat for them to have something to show for their hunt other than the meat. They can go and show off the antlers to friends and family and feel like they have accomplished more when they have killed a buck. It used to be that way for me too. I have my garage lined with racks that are less than stellar from years past. This year I have killed 4 does, and have not yet killed a buck. I hope I do, but have decided not to kill the young or even marginal deer this year. I can understand why people do...I love whitetail racks too.
