Deer Classifications

 
 
Trophy Buck

( 55 to 65% of the bucks will typically fall into this classification ).


Trophy Bucks are classified as being a fully mature buck 4 1/2 years of age or older with
good to outstanding antler development and will generally score high using a typical Boone &
Crocket type scoring system. These bucks generally have 8 to 12 points or better and can average from the 135 to 165 BC with larger non typical bucks in the range of 165 to 170 BC. There are bucks that will make you proud, bucks worthy of being show cased and bucks that will exceed your expectations but, there are never two bucks the same. When it comes down to the moment,
" a Trophy Buck is in the eyes of the Beholder ".
 

Management Bucks

( 15 to 20% of the bucks will typically fall into this classification )


Management Bucks are classified as averaging from 3 to 4 years of age or and come with a variety of antler configurations such as; miss-matched or uneven antler growth, mal or deformed antlers, split points, basket rack or maybe a 4, 6, or 8 point buck that's simply slow to mature. In this regard, the combinations and possabilities are endless including an occasional one-of-a-kind freak or cyclopse buck. A management buck can also include an fully mature trophy buck who has lived and developed to his prime and may be in physical decline.
 
Unclassified Bucks

( 10 to 15% of the bucks will typically fall into this classification )


Unclassified bucks may yield promise but are unclassified due to their young age, slow developement or lack of genetic maturity. These bucks are passed over in favor of better quality deer and allowed more time and opportunity to develop and mature.

To protect the genetic poole and to maintain a healthy buck to doe ratio the folloowing conditions
must be observed and maintained.
* All buck deer harvested must have an inside ( tip to tip ) spread of 13" or greater.
* Cull Bucks may be harvested only with expressed permission.
* Doe Deer carrying Fawn or Yearling Deer may not be harvested.
* Fawn or Yearling Deer may not to be harvested.

Harvesting deer contained of these classification or without permission is strickly forbidden.
