Thanks for stopping by Buck Manager! Deer management has grown in popularity over the past few decades and although the deer hunting world has grown its knowledge of white-tailed deer, the techniques required to improve wildlife habitat and really manage a deer population is not always straight forward to landowners and hunters. Buck Manager was created to help you. From experience, I will tell you that I have seen armchair “deer managers” do it all wrong, and in many cases, from the moment they first started!
Most deer hunters want a high-quality white-tailed deer herd on their property (whether leased or owned), and although management-minded hunters may mean well, they do not always know what they are doing. Don’t get me wrong, I am not putting anyone down because we have all made mistakes, but neither of us expects an engineer, lawyer, or businessman to be a natural born deer manager. The same way someone would not expect me to build a bridge, try a case, or perform mergers and acquisitions. I received my degrees in wildlife ecology and management and I’ve worked with numerous ranches specifically on recreational and commercial deer management programs, so that is what I know and offer.
The value of deer and deer hunting, in addition to other factors, have caused land values to skyrocket in recent years. New landowners are purchasing land every day simply for recreational purposes, with intentions of improving the white-tailed deer herd found on their properties. Because of the high start-up costs associated with acquiring and maintaining land, and the fact that time is valuable, I think it’s important for landowners and hunters to have a good understanding of the fundamentals of deer management.
This site is focused on helping dedicated landowners and sportsmen better manage the deer habitat and deer herds found on their lands. Buck Manager will try to give you as much detailed information as possible, so if anything is ever unclear, or you have specific questions concerning white-tailed deer or deer habitat management, contact me at the email address below. Additionally, you can also enter your email address in the subscription box at the top of every page to receive all future Buck Manager articles free and automatically.
As you will notice, topics on the site will encompass all the necessary components for a healthy deer herd that will help you, as a result, produce more and better trophy bucks! Content on the site will also cover newsworthy hunting regulations, big buck harvests, the latest white-tailed deer research, and anything deer. By the way, if you have any personal hunting stories, local news-worthy deer articles, deer hunting reports, or hunting photos, send them in and I’ll put them on the site! I am always interested in what’s going on in the world of deer hunting.
