Default Mature Bucks?

I have a dilemma, i hunt a very good piece of property (160 acres). It has good water, cover and food. I shot I 125" 2 1/2 yr old buck last year. I see young deer all the time. There is also a ton of does. Doesn't there have to be some mature bucks on this property? And how many bucks can have the same home range?

Hey there. I think it might surprise to know how many mature deer can occupy the same area. Truth is, I don't know damn thing about that though. But I will say that certain areas with high numbers of hunters and hunting pressure, i.e. deer harvests, don't exactly help out the "mature" deer populations.Remember, if given the opportunity, even a spike buck canbreed a doe.Maybe your herd is just younger altogether. But there's gotta be a couple big boys in there.
