The tracks are doe tracks, but since I am not really concerned with getting a big set antlers or a head to mount on the wall then a doe will do just fine. It will be just as tasty. Of course the website for Deer Cane says that bucks will want the minerals for "overall health and rack development". Somewhere out here is a big ol buck with good sized rack. Last year we spotted his tracks and this year Luci caught a glimpse of him on the edge of the road. Of course they have this rule about if you take a buck the antlers must have a width of at least thirteen inches which is pretty hard to determine. The best advice on determining width I have found is from Wild Ed's Texas Outdoor Blog. I will probably just stick to taking a doe for meat if I can get one. Last year I never could get even a look at the buck while I had a gun in my hand let alone a good shot.
