Once again I look upon these nice Hoosier Deer and I say only letting us shoot one Buck in our state is paying off big time. Now lets nock down some of these good eating Does!

More evidence that Indiana's one buck program is working. Here is a link to one gun shop that has a check in station. Many years ago you might see one or two deer of this caliber be checked in at a particular check station. Look at the bucks that came in on week one in a small town check station.

you got it! I complained to DNR headquarters that the buck to doe ratio was totally out of whack. The guy told me that according to the tests they did, everything looked fine. They didnt go out and do field observations. They took their statistics from the number of bucks to doe's shot each year. The numbers were close. They didnt count button bucks or anything.

But the problem with this is that most people were holding out for bucks and not shooting does. If the ratio was closer to being 50/50 then I think the number of bucks being shot would be higher than the doe's just for the fact that most people are looking for a buck.

Anyways, the year I complained is the year the rules began changing. The doe bag limits went way up.

And if they want bigger bucks in Indiana, I think a 4 point rule would do the trick. More bucks would have a chance to gain some years. a 4 point, 1 buck rule. It would be tougher to get a buck for the first 2 or 3 years, but after that, there should be quite a few niceee bucks running around.

I could be wrong

Looks like the new rules have turned us into a big buck state. Just a matter of time now before our reputation matches every state around us. Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan... big buck states. Our turn.
