Has anyone else ever heard of the buck/doe ratios affecting the growth of antlers? I was told that if a herd has ample doe's the bucks antlers won't grow as large. The reasoning behind the therory is that a lack of competetion among the bucks for doe's, results in less need for impressive head gear.
JPH please explain how a late gun season helps with antler growth more than good nutrition.. I get the good genetics, and selective hunters passing young bucks helps them get into older age classes just not sure I understand the late gun season...
