    We had 4 in our group hunting area 1, saw a lot of deer, didnt even really get to hunt sat morning because fog was so thick you could only ee 30 yds. 3 out of 4 of us killed bucks, all kinda small 4, 7, 8 pt young deer, but we did get to help them manage and took home some meat! All in all saw a lot of deer and had a good time (my 5th time there and only 2nd buck I have taken there).

    No offense and you are well within your rights, but I don't think shooting small bucks is really part of their management plan.

    Quality Deer Management (QDM): Deer harvests in 2009 showed positive trends in older age class bucks
    for LBL, with yearling bucks below 40% in both KY and TN. Kentucky quota hunts will remain at two for
    2010. All quota hunt permits will be either sex permits. Hunters are encouraged to harvest more does to
    help balance the deer herd.

    No offense taken, because i feel like I have earned whatever I take down there in the amount of time over the years Ive spent scouting and hunting empty handed there but When you kill 2 deer that are 2.5 yrs old one four point that is very small and a 7 pt maybe smaller I believe you are helping the heard because those two deer would never amount to anything and those genes would need to come out if it were my farm.

    Wow.

    I wasn't expecting the # to be anywhere near that out of whack.

    Are you guys considering any changes to bring that number back in line with your QDM objective?

    Things have been getting that way gradually over the past several years-- Everyone wants a buck and refuses to shoot does, either because of the larger amount of meat on a fork-horn or due to an outdated opinion of deer management needs. It's occurring in both state sections of LBL.
    Part of what happens is that two-day quota hunts with 'bonus' deer cause the following to occur: Day 1= wait for a nice buck, unless the weather is getting bad, then shoot any buck. Day 2= if it's brown, it's down.
    LBL may consider having a late-season doe-only gun hunt, but we are not sure how many people might actually show up for it!
    All permits this time were either sex, and many people are seeing huge numbers of does.... but most would rather shoot a spike than a doe. That doesn't help much with trying to grow bigger deer by controlling population numbers and letting the little guys walk; however, this is public land, and LBL needs to try to manage deer for the 'average' hunter, not just the 'trophy' hunters.-- Therein lies the obscure definition of the phrase "Quality Deer Management"-- there appears to be some discrepancy as to what that definition means to different people. Some think it means a 'quality' hunt is produced by having a large enough deer herd to contained a few big bucks, and a mix of a lot of others for the 'average' hunter and a few 'trophy' hunters to be fairly satisfied with their hunting experience.... Others see it as simply doing what is needed to grow larger bucks (such as antler restrictions, increased doe harvests, removal of long-tined spikes, etc).
    A couple of years ago, LBL management explored the possibility of trying to get some sort of moderate antler width restrictions enacted, but couldn't get enough support to enact it-- that would have helped force people to either take more does or wait for an adult buck. It would be nice to see something like that, but it seems that will be more difficult to make happen than managers had hoped.

    We try to do our part during bow season to help with your doe population.
