I received a call from a taxidermist the other day who has 4-5 deer he would like measured. 1 of the deer came from Tri-County (public hunting ground) and 2 more came from land adjacent to Tri-County. I would like to hear from guys who hunt public ground how the OBR has affected their buck sightings. After talking with the taxidermist, my theory is that on public ground you have a lesser chance of guys being selective. They know as well as the next guy that someone new may very well be hunting that area the next day, next week, etc. Many times they have limited time to hunt or must hunt via a drawing. Does anyone have numbers on how mature bucks have come along on the public grounds? Either by record book entrys or just plain sightings. Are you public ground only hunters happier with what you are seeing, don't care because its the same, or disappointed because now its one buck and you are done?
