What are the best tactics to improve the deer herd on New England public land? Very few people hunt it and I would like to be able to see more bucks express their full potential.


Age or maturity is the biggest factor in bucks expressing their full potential. Habitat quality is the next most important factor. In most states hunters aren’t allowed to modify the habitat on public land. They can pass immature bucks and allow them to mature!

Enjoy creation,
