    What disappoints me the most about deer hunting today is the competition among deer hunters. Deer hunting was never meant to be this way. This only leads to divisiveness among the ranks, something that the anti's love. We cannot go on this way and expect this pastime to survive. JMO but I truly believe that the hunters themselves will be the demise of deer hunting as we know it.

    How do the young male bucks happen in your area??? Shoot the buttons and kill a crop of young males or many of them.

    So your place doesn't really follow John Ozoga"s advice.

    They are not the cause but the exchange of secretions do transfer disease. If that were not true why worry about any concentration of deer? The above post implies that the experts are not correct.

    The jaws are not aged consistently today and the above post wants us to believe that correct aging can happen from 1000 or more years ago. :D

    . It's proven the American Indian harvested deer averaging 4.5 years old..

    Not true, they took whatever they could get and were glad to get it.

    The land owners in Iowa know one thing more than anything. Big bucks on their property means big bucks in their pocket. Nothing wrong with that. Should that ever change something tells me that their management practices would also change.

    Good example of you caring more about the size of deer this young girl harvests with her grandpa, than just being happy for them. Size matter a lot to you? I bet it the last thing they are thinking about.

    It's a perfect time to teach your kids some trigger restraint. Letting bucks grow to maturity (size and maturity usually go hand in hand) do matter to me. I'd be willing to bet you've got box full of sparky racks that my 11 yr old wouldn't even consider shooting.

    How pleasant of you.
    I'd be willing to bet that a good portion of hunters wouldn't even consider shooting a buck like the one in your avatar. Nice, huh?
    From my experience with kids, you don't "teach trigger restraint". They learn on their own with the proper mentor. I have never, and will never, tell any kid what or what not to shoot within the law. Sadly, it sounds like you do.
