    How Do They Grow Them So Big?????.......pic

    Food, Genetics, and Age.



    This deer was from a private hunting preserve in Indiana. Many deer have the potential to get big, but they are missing one of those 3 ingredients.

    Here is a pic of another one. (I did not shoot them)

    Awesome antlers there. I've never had buck fever but those might cause it... All three ingredients needed to grow like that for sure... I don't think we would ever consistently get giants like that here in free range Jersey deer but I truly wish there were state wide antler restrictions or a one or two per total buck allowance. PA has it and they are definitely shooting some great deer. Time/age creating big bucks here in Jersey can be proven, just look at some of these urban deer and no discharge towns. I personally have been watching a buck in a small mostly fenced patch of woods in an urban area and by three he was pretty big and had split brows...Too many guys shooting multiple dinks in both gun and bow seasons consistently every year.....Not trying to come off as preaching....I have passed sometimes on little bucks and sometimes not... but I am not just slamming every single dink I see cause I am worried the next guy will shoot him anyway....
