I have read post on larger bucks and bigger racks, but not much on harvesting does. I have insults thrown my way for killing does, but it needs to be done. For larger bucks and heavier deer you need to take out does. When you have a large amount of does running around, they are competing for the same food source as the bucks. They are inbreeding, which will cause smaller racks and smaller bodies. The buck to doe ratio should be around 1:1. This would mean a lot of does killed. Think about this: why would a large mature buck run around during the rut and chase does in the day, when it could wait for the does on the food plots at night. The mature bucks will go noctirnal when pressure incresses in the woods. Bump him once and he is gone noctirnal. Here in TN in unit L you can kill 3 doe a day from around middle sept thru first week in jan. There is no way you could comsume that much meat. My son and I will shoot as many deer as our freezer will hold. We still do not come close to killing as many does as needed and we do get some help from friends. Think about it.
