1969, (3 total, 1 buck 2 does), Yes I realize that was long before some of you were even born. And there was a period of 5 years in a row that I hunted hard that I did not kill a deer. I would like for someone to start a survey asking that question. How many years have you passed on deer that you could have legally taken.
Would be an interesting question. On my place, I've shot 3 bucks in 17 years that I wouldn't consider culls and another 3 that were culls. In the early years, I wouldn't allow does to be shot either.
However, I've helped cull on a high fenced place in the past and think I've taken as many as 20 does/culls in a weekend. Lots of the culls would have been trophies on my small low fence place. Donated all of the meat, so it went to a good home.
