What do you think the buck to doe ratio is in your area? In my area of zone 12 I think it is about 3 does to 1 buck.

the area that i have been hunting most this year (southern washington co.)is seems to be about 5-1. I that my buddy that owns the land says he has seen at least 4 different bucks and probably 20 different does. right around my house(Springdale-Siloam springs) i would say 7-8 to 1. lots of does and very few bucks(at least that is the way it seems). I just know that thereis definitely more doe by far. trying to remedy that if i ever get time to hunt.

According to my records for the past 2 years here in the Ozarks, we have about a 6:1 ratio.

In zone 12 I'd say three or four to one. In zone one it goes up quite a bit. I'd say above 5-1, but I don't see enough up here to get a good handle on it.

I don't know but I have seen close to 60 does and 7 bucks since deer season has started. Not to good.
