Maybe put antlerless season at the beginning of Janurary.
I have seen this mentioned in the past. I am not sure if it would be good or bad. I recall late last season reading a forum (not here, can't recall where though) where some stated the bucks were dropping antlers (in December). I was sicker than a dog and missed the late season not to mention shed hunting is something I never got into anyway. I have read in several places the big bucks drop antlers before the smaller bucks. And the bigger boys come out of the rut needing energy (I am thinking left over Ag crops or baiting plots)... seems to be a bad combination to me.
Can someone with knowledge comment? Would holding a January doe only season run the risk of shooting bucks who have already dropped their antlers? Or am I blowing it out of proportion?
Any other pros/cons?
