Every deer hunter wants to grow more deer, specifically more bucks, and, in particular, bigger bucks.
The truth is if you want to grow more bucks, then you also have to grow more does, since the antlerless deer contribute just as much to the genetics of the bucks as the male deer component of the breeding process. Ironically, some research suggests that the doe has an even greater genetic role than the buck. Either way, you have to have the does to get the job done. So, if you work to grow more deer, even does, then the result should statistically be more bucks as well.
