Your right, but you can still figure it out using the math. If you ever figure out how to use a calculator that is. [;)][:D]

Okay if, and I said IF, I could figure out how to use a calculator, I would still have to walk into the kitchen and get it out of the basket on top of the fridge. Then after all that effort I would still have to do at least some form of math.

Not happening!

wow.....these numbers don't add up where i hunt.
 
WHere I hunt....buck will be 135-140 inches at 5.5 years and sometimes smaller.  The biggest rack shot since 1956 is probably 135-140 inch.
 
we have genetics and age.....food ???  well its all swamps.       No corn, apples, accorn,...no fields...no farmland.
 
Still interesting to learn !

I am a bit out of my league with this subject, but I think many "experts" believe antler growth is largely determined by soil quality. It just so happens that agriculture follows soil quality for business reasons.

We tend to see the bulk of our large antlered deer being killed in ag. regions. Is it the diet or the soil quality? I dunno.

Interesting chart.  Earlier I was going through my deer cam pics trying to identify prospects for next year.
