Deer Culling Does Not Improve Deer: Common Sense Habitat Management Does

In a landmark 13-year study based on 15,000 animal trappings, the Comanche (Farias) Ranch near Eagle Pass, Texas, has proven that culling of so-called “inferior” bucks, including spikes, does not increase antler size in wild deer herds—and often harms the herds.

 

The study’s conclusions contradict what our universities have taught, consultants have advised, and landowners have practiced for decades.

 

Its common sense conclusion? Good habitat results in bigger deer, so landowners should focus their efforts on improving their habitat management practices.
