What age class animal would be a good starting point? As far as I can tell
there isn't alot of hunting pressure around the property. I know that a mature whitetail buck could have a home range as large as 10 sq miles.
that means he may be killed by others. But that is a risk we all face on small tracts. I know that at least we wont intentinally kill fawns to
fill our meat pole. I guess that our goal isn't just to kill an older age class
buck. Its more to provide us all with a quality experience. I still want to
harvest a buck as will my son and hunting partners. I dont want the quest to kill a trophy to over shadow the hunting experience. So any sugestions
as to what kind of buck should/could be harvested in the starting phase of a small scale management(micro management)plan? I know that is a loaded question with many posible answers because of the many unknown variables, just looking for anyone else's thoughts as to what might be
an realistic age class to harvest.
My son and I did see a dandy of a buck last Saturday on the property,
that was the first time I have walked on the property in over 20 years.
