I have at least three at my place. Two seem young ones and the other is older pretty good size. Only have seen him once or twice. Might let my buddy's son take him this weekend if he comes out.

I saw about 6 all year. Young and old. Should have shot the old one. He was a trophy in his own right.

Seen more this year than a long time, just a few though, the bonus cull tag they added in the AR counties has really thinned them out.

I'm in an AR county and not sure I consider one fully branched buck exceeding 13" and one unbranched ar spike buck as the 2nd legal buck an "extra" cull tag. I would consider that the case for a two fully branched buck county + an unbranched buck/spike "an extra cull" buck situation though.

Nobody on our lease saw a spike all season. Lot of young bucks but they all had several points.
Maybe after 7 years and us shooting every spike we saw did some good.

We see very few. Maybe 2 all year that are true spikes.

Have not seen a single spike all year, everything has had both branched antlers. I have one 1.5 yr old that every time he comes out I think he is a three point, but when you put the binos on him that one side just forks enough on the end that I won't shoot him.

confused All AR counties used to be 1 buck, its a bonus cull tag.

Hardly no spikes this year....just a few and they were 1.5yo. We try our best not to cull any buck until 3yo
