1 way to get bigger bucks is to let smaller ones walk. It will take a couple years, and take the cooperation of neighboring land owners though.

Then factor in some patience and scouting/time in the stand and you will be seeing better bucks.

Don't shoot small bucks in the main thing, If you shoot them, then where are the big ones going to come from. Also predator control!!!!
