How Many Does Should I Shoot with Kip Adams

How Many Does Should I Shoot with Kip Adams

Show Notes

During this podcast, you will hear from Kip Adams the Conservation Director of the QDMA. Kip is a long time hunter and land manager with extensive knowledge of whitetail deer management. Kip and his family own roughly 700 acres in north-central Pennsylvania. This farm is situated in a heavily hunted portion of the whitetail's range. With his class and willingness to educate fellow hunters, Kip shares his farm's personal trail camera history with us to learn from.

In this podcast, you will hear Kip discuss how to conduct a trail camera and hunter observation study. Then we will discuss in full detail what all these numbers like the buck to doe ratio, doe to fawn ratio, age structure, and percentage of the deer herd you should be harvesting. These numbers are real and have significance to everyone listening because they are repeatable. Acquiring these numbers isn't difficult. A simple camera trap along with hunter observation cards will do the trick.

Don't go into the season without having goals. If you want to grow bigger bucks, shoot does. Reduce the number of mouths and each deer will improve in condition. There is a balance or harmony with the land and wildlife that call it home that each land manager should strive to accomplish. #ForLoveoftheLand
