I am a guy that is far from irresponsible as a hunter... And if you don't want to believe me when I say I would pass on a massive bodied wall hanger buck as fast as I would pass on a doe out of season I understand...

I just cannot get that size deer to my truck and processed before it spoiled...

I need a small bodied buck or a doe... I know I can get a 130# buck moved a short distance by my self but not real far and not real fast...

I cannot get does off my WMA during state doe season as they do not honor it....

Many private land owners I associate with to the point of asking permission to hunt use doe season for the youngins' or for family food just as I would do...

Thus, a tighter antler restriction than a single spike of 4 or more inches would proportionately limit my opportunities for a deer for the freezer...

Not to mention, I like knowing I am leaving the finer bucks to those look forward to hunting the better and/or bigger deer...

I also like the cleaner tasting venison so I don't hunt the rut much...
