We work with a wildlife biologist and we estimated that we have around 1 deer/8 acres. The reason it's this high is because we feed a lot - we have fed almost 20,000lbs of protein this year so far. The biologist estimated for us to shoot 4 bucks this year and he initially said 4 does, but since we are seeing around a 150% fawn crop this year, he recommended we shoot 6 does. We will not be shooting 4 trophy bucks, in fact we are going after 3 bucks that are 6.5yrs and older that just don't have the antlers we would like them to have at their age.
