Default 1.5 yr old nubbin buck.

If you have several 1.5 yo 4-6 pointers, would you let a 1.5 yo nubbin buck walk? He doesnít even break the skin so it would be a anterless tag. We arenít shooting does.

Sure he is 1.5 and not 6 months old? I have a nubbin that’s 6months old and already the size of his momma.

Ok yíall convinced me. He will live out the dream of eating my protein and corn for the next 5 years and then Iíll shoot him as a cull. Lol. Just kidding. Yíall did convince me. Probably just wanted to use a anterless tag since we donít shoot does. Figured Iíd found a loop hole.

We donít have that many for some reason. On average I see 15-25 bucks at my feeder with 4-5 does. Itís crazy. And with only 2 buck tags it dam near impossible to change it.

If you can legally shoot it, aren't braking the lease agreement and want some meat paint the arrow red!!

On the other point, balancing the buck to doe ratio. If you need some deer removed to balance the the ratio find some young peeps and introduce them to hunting. Win, win all the way around.

Would love too. Lease rules prevent it. Meat wasnít the reason. Just looking to reduce the buck numbers. If you have 4 bucks all the same age, 3 with 4 points or more why feed the one that hasnít even broken the skin. Sure he ď could ď be something but chances are the other 3 will be better. In my through process. But this is only my 3rd yr into ever having a place where only seeing 10 bucks is a slow day.

Totally understand about the lease agreement and that's probably why I will never be on a lease. I get that its about management but what about having a better buck to doe ratio??

I am at the other end of the fight. After what you have said I would have shot it. The area needs to bring down the buck population in a big way for the next 5 or so years.
You might want to find another place to hunt.
Where I hunt we are discussing mature 8 pointers verses teen 10 pointers...............

I would pee my pants if I saw that many bucks at my feeder. Definitely need to get the ratios in order. Sounds like you need some more shooters to take out some culls.

Is this place high fenced? I would think that bucks would travel away in search of more does if competition is that high. Sounds like 3 bucks for every doe, really unusual. If the bucks are a lot of 1.5 year olds, a lot of those will wander off anyway. There was study posted not long ago talking about this
https://www.qdma.com/yearling-buck-d...fast-how-many/

Maybe a lot of those young bucks you described will be leaving this fall
