In theory, harvesting more does and encouraging hunters to be selective with their single buck tag will create a healthier herd and help balance lopsided female to male ratios. The end result should be a dramatic increase in the overall number of mature trophy-class bruisers and an improved statewide buck to doe ratio. For years, private land owners and ranchers have been utilizing similar management practices to improve the quality of hunting for their clients. Some of these controlled areas consistently produce high numbers of top-heavy mature bucks season after season. In the real world, state wildlife officials have far less control when it comes to selective harvesting. However, supporters of a one-buck bag limit still believe this conservative plan can have an overwhelming impact on a state's deer management program.
