Which Bucks Do the Breeding?

Most hunters equate dominance in bucks to body size or antler size. That's not always the way it is, any more than the biggest men are the most dominant men. Any football coach will tell you that some big kids just don't have it in them to dominate on the football field. Sometimes it's the little guy who pushes the big guy around.

 

So in the deer woods, is it the big bodied bucks and the bucks with the biggest antlers that do the breeding? Maybe not. Check out my October 29 column in the Jamestown (NY) Gazette: "Which Bucks Do the Breeding?"
