I very rarely if ever see a mature 4-6 point, maybe its this areas we hunt are different genetics but i just rarely ever see a mature scrub buck. However I do see a handful of cull bucks that I usually will fill a tag on, so that would be out the window with the one buck rule. If we were to keep the 2 buck rule I would like to see rifle season set up like Kansas has it in mid December. I understand the fact that they are trying to set the gun seasons as close to the rut as possible for better hunter success but IMO this is the cause of people shooting immature deer. Just because ole Billy Bob wants some horns for the front of his jeep he shoots a 1 1/2 year old 6 point, that who knows in 3 years was a very nice 150" trophy for someone who actually puts in the time. Now for kids shooting young deer, I don't have as much as problem because it gets them interested in the sport. My first deer was a 2 1/2 year old 10 point that nowadays I would let walk, but thats what got me started.
This is one from this year. I see several every season that are mature Forks or mature 6's
