What's the buck to doe ratio where you hunt?

When I first started my dad told me it was frowned upon to shoot does. Does = bucks so leave the does and bucks will come. Back then I’d have no problem seeing 20-30 does a sit, especially mid December and on but bucks  were few and far between. Now after smacking a ton of does the last few years, it’s hard filling a damn EAB tag but seeing at least one buck every sit is common. I’d say 1:3/1:4 max in the area.

DV1 , do you base this on scientific data? ( not arguing serious question) 

I wonder if my observations are skewed because doe tend to be easier to see  in my opinion. 

Are there 3 bucks that I do not see because they learned to hide more? I often wonder this, did they bust me checking my phone and the doe were less weary?

It won't ever be greater than 3:1,  but that wasn't supposed to be revealed until people yelled and screamed at each other for a day or two.  Matt makes a lot more money that way.  :lookaround:

Knew that’s what you were going for Rusty! Starting to figure you out now, you mountain boys are pretty tricky!

I may as well add, I’m not going to give an answer to this question, but if you don’t get a rash of s... over your answer, you can rest assured that it’s because guys don’t want to take you on regarding this topic due to your stature on the site, but If I gave my answer, you can bet there’d be a “debate” from here to next week! 
So, if you’re trying to drum up business for Matt, pass me your questions and let me pose them, you’ll have some action then!😎
