I think the Biggest buck tallyis a more useful sample with regards to demographicsif you will than a total number of all bucks killed simply because we had a lot of members passing bucks that didn't fit their criteria of a shooter.
We had 3 guys on Team 29 pass up 2.5yr old bucks that would contribute to those numbers and went the season without filling their tags.

Standards play too much of a role in how many bucks in general are harvested, but a big buck is a big buck and I don't think there are very many people passing up bucks starting around 141 P&Y inches.[:-]

The number of different antlered bucksin bow rangefor the participants would be a much more useful number if you could somehow gather that info.

The contest had kind of a down year this year. Look at the biggest buck this year. I was expecting something over 200"
