These pineywoods deer aren't as productive on this sandy soil as those in other parts of the US with better soils.

Plus, if I don't kill a few does my farmer neighbors will shoot them on a deer control permit this spring.

If you don't have the Doe's you won't have a deer herd .just shoot what comes along and don't get greedy , antler's don't eat.

I did catch him on that property the first year we had a season. The neighbors had a pack of nine on there trail cameras this year.

Population in the river corridor where my place is located is about 25 to 30 deer/square mile. I probably could take a few more does without any change in next year's hunt quality, but annual recruitment rates are not very good here due to the low quality habitat here.

Sandy soils, minimal agriculture, moderate hunting pressure from neighbors, river bottom deer dependent on acorn crop = go easy on the doe segment.

Sounds like you need more hunters .Some people up here think they can manage deer herds by taking out does but they don't consider they small acreage they actually have control of and it does nothing for bigger deer here . Have fun and best of luck.

Neighbors kill several does annually...about like me. Most of us along this corridor protect 1.5 and 2.5 year old bucks. Family groups of does are relatively easy to cherry pick mature does from. So, they can be kept somewhat in check even on small properties, especially if neighbors are doing similar.

These southern piney flatwoods dont even come close to the Midwest deer habitat like you have in Illinois. In good, rich soil farm country, even here in Ga, you can kill every doe you see and not have much of an effect on the population. Can't do that here...on these poor soils. It'll take longer for the population to rebound. Here in SE Ga we have to manage similar to north Florida (see deer management studies from UF in Gainesville.)
