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

all these old spikes, but no pictures?????

hmmmm.. I guess genetics suddenly went to hell in a hand basket? or maybe it's a situation of range conditions?

interesting.
