Default Antler Point Restrictions work

A couple years ago they introduced APRs in one of the areas I hunt. At first i was hesitant because it was limiting our options. Now that we're starting to see some results, im a fan. Before a lot of guys would shoot spikes and y bucks because you may not see another buck. This year we have seen an increase in bucks in general. A ton of spikes and y bucks running around, which will get the chance to grow another year. Also seen an increase in 5-7 pointers, which I'm assuming are last years y bucks. Had this y buck within 20 yards last night, also seen 6 does, a 3 pts, and a button buck. My buddy was a couple hundred yards away in another plot and seen a big 6, a small 5, and multiple does. The deer are moving early, this y came out at 3:55. Back at it after the storm.

I think those 5 and 7 pointers are 1.5 year olds too. Unless they're pretty big.

It's working perfectly in zones 9 and 13. They need to expand it. Just my opinion.

They just went to antler restrictions where we hunt in NY and I could not be happier. For the last 6-7 years we had a self imposed min 6 point rule and we did not see a change at all because the other clubs around us would shoot the little bucks we passed up so we where really just giving the other clubs more deer Its will be very interesting what happens in the next few years
