I hunt a few different places from Mason to Menard. The deer in some of the areas fool us all of the time, they just do not get big. They have a small body structure and never get much of a rack. We shoot 5-8 year old bucks that look like the one pictured above often, usually scoring 100-120. There are the occasional bucks that make 140-150+, but the majority of the bucks are small, regardless of age.
I do not know if it is genetics or vegitation, but we get new hunters are surprised when they shoot 120 pound 6-7 year old that scores 100, when they thought they were thinning out the young 8 pointers.
