I'd be willing to bet that you have more does and fawns than you are aware of. With 4 bucks to each doe, the bucks would have gone looking somewhere else for does. Prime ratios would of course be 1-1, but in reality most managed areas will have 2 or 3 does to every buck.....and that includes doe fawns. This year my ratio had gotten skewed towards too many does and fawns, so I killed several younger does while passing on more bucks. According to my trail cameras and what I've seen while hunting, I still need to kill another 3 or 4 does in order to get my ratio back to what it should be.
