Culling on a basic deer lease...isn't going to change a lot. If you have a 3 year old ****head and you need some meat, kill it. But all you really did is make one less buck, one less deer, and MAYBE keep him from breeding a time or two, but probably not. But it doesn't hurt.

In most of our situations, altering genetics just isn't going to happen.

But if you are on a lease with "enough" deer, and they allow it, eat up!

The does are 1/2 the equation anyway, and there is no way to know which have the best genes anyway.

So shoot your deer the way you want, and go hunting the next year.

Obviously a 2 or 3 or 4 year old that shows positive characteristics should be let go based on how long you think he can make it, but you don't know how much breeding he will get done either way.


KILLING ENOUGH DOES, imo is the way to make sure the stronger genes prevail, but we can make **** little difference in that regard either...genetics wise.
