up

We shot one this weekend too. Have seen multiple yearlings with up to 8 points and seems like every doe that hops out of the brush has twins, some deer are going to need killing this year.

One of my questions is why can we shoot spikes if we are trying to have deer grow bigger? I know there are some old spikes but all of the ones I have seen are only about a year old and I haven't seen all that many. I am not saying the law should change I'm just curious of the reason behind it.

Great job on the deer!!!

Many believe me included that "MOST" spike yearlings are genetically inferior to their branched antler buddies.

because why waste 4 more years worth of groceries on a deer that couldn't do better than spikes during the very best ecological conditions in a decade..........

I have seen pictures of spikes turning into monsters. Realtree has an article out of a deer they started taking pics of and it started out as a spike but ended up being a booner buck.

sick I have seen real life and percentages say otherwise..... there are only so many plates at the table, fill those spots with the highest potential producers is as simple as that.
