Question for the buck managers. Buddy has 140 acres in North MO that he has owned 1 year. It's about 40% timber and 60% CRP but less than half of that is WSG. There are a few draws that connect to it but overall very little connecting cover and it has roads along 2 sides of it. There is a big bodied 8 point on it that was mature and all over it last fall. It's not Iowa so there aren't as many mature deer but this farm lacked even 3 year old bucks. Unfortunately, he didn't get him killed and it seems reasonable that if he was truly a bully he could have easily controlled 140 acres with fairly limited cover. Reason tells me if there was a lot of connecting cover to this farm the up and comers would still at least use the farm. Reason also tells me that if they got pushed off 2 or 3 times they would just head for the next block of cover and not come back.
