Ex, what do you mean the ratio is set quite high for buck to does? Are you referring to the optimal number of bucks for every doe? If so, what is that number and does it vary for white tail and mule deer and region to region.
In some areas of my state, you barely see a rut and some have blamed that on too many does to bucks. The bucks have too many does to breed to worry about competing with other bucks to the rut is less noticiable. I don't know if this theory is valid or not, just what I heard.
