management purposes? that is when the season comes, cause we were on our farm last weekend spotlighting for hogs and bobcats and other varmints, and unfortunately we saw nothing but bucks mule deer bucks with very few does, there were about 40 bucks and 20 does, so y question is is there a legal means of managing more bucks since the state allows only one buck?

Let's trade. All we have is mule deer does. We see about 10-15 does for every buck.

Your best bet is to get on a MLD program work hand in hand with TPWD to manage your herd. Might have to get some extra folks out there to shoot some deer if the biologist says more need to be harvested.

What county is your lease in?

MLD is your best bet, gives you the opportunity to thin the herd legally and lets you have that second chance if you shoot the big one that turned out to be smaller than the one you'll see tomorrow. Talk to your TPWD biologist and have him get a census and sign you up. If you get the permits, talk to the landlord about offering a management youth hunt with the Texas Youth Hunter Association or something similar. Rewarding for everyone!

not a lease it my moms farm, its in childress/cottle counties, its about 465 acres, and theres a canyon they bed in during the day and come out at night to feed, according to my brother the does are about 1/3 of the herd the other 2/3rds are bucks, we took four last rifle season, my brothers three friends shot one each along with him, he said he saw some masive bucks and we rarely see a big one thwere anymore and its not like it used to be where you could literally drive within thirty feet of the herd and drop one someone has been tresspassing and killing animals on our land due to no fence, the warden knows and has yet to catch anybody be we've had people turn off and break our feeders i'm eager to put some trail cams out to see if i can catch them in the act, but nobody reaspects the boundaries up there and hunts where the hell they feel like it, i think more wardens should be assigned out there to end that bs, but i'm not joking about the herd, we have way more bucks then does, but i'm geussing we need to call the warden about both the tresspassing even though they already know, and ask about the herd

You better wait until October to see if you have that those numbers. Bucks normally hang together during the summer.In the fall they may be at your neighbors and not at yours.

we spotted these during the two weeks of rifle season, we typically go out at night to keep an eye out on the herd, as we've had poachers and mountain lions coyotes bobcats all attack the herd and we try to keep those guys thinned out so we dont have to worry with the herd getting hurt, but our farm is at the very back of county road cc, eastbound of 287 if your going north, ou'll see a big ranch fenced off by the edge of the road to the left side of the road is our farm, its a cotton farm, and w need a guy to measure out the land again cause we found out that we have extra land we didn't know about that someone else had fenced off or something like that
