So every 1.5 is killed? So how is there any deer left if a neighbor shoots 1.5a? I have 12 acres neighbors to east and north and north of that shoot anything amd I busted one shooting over his number last year. Year before him and "wife shot" 4 bucks. Biggest a 5 point. How is it I have multiple mature bucks around my 12acres again. All be it at night but still do. In your theory me passing every buck that walks by it would see 2.5 or 3.5 or older. I guarantee if I was shooting 2 little ones a year along with everyone else's there would be 2 less 2 yes next year. Which mean probably 1 less 3.5 the following year.
