We actually have a special season for them and does after the general deer season.

What do people do with spike whitetail bucks where you're at?

The last I heard, even if a spike buck grows up for several years, they're not real good. A smaller percentage of them get 8+ pts and even if they do, the mass of their rack is like half that of a young fork horn buck grown to the same age. Kerrville Wildlife Management area is supposed to be doing a study where they study the droubt effects on this earlier result they had though. I don't know anything yet on those results.

we shoot them if there legal. Some areas are 3pt or bigger and some areas are any buck so if its a spike and he walks out hes dead.

Your my kind of hunter Elkchsr.

What I mean by that is you and I think a like about hunting, I didn't mean I was interested in you in any unnatual sort of way. Or if you are politicaly correct I guess it's natural. Either way FORGET IT I'M NOT INTERESTED.

Ohio but my heart is always in the woods
Luckily here in Ohio the only restriction is what constitutes a antlered deer. It is antlers 3" or better. I don't carry a tape measure and can't run fast enough to measure the antlers ;) :D But we are able to take a antlered or antlerless deer with our tags. We just are only allowed to take 1 antlered deer each hunting year.
