I favor a one buck limit. At the very least, a three to five year trial period would give hunters the opportunity to witness the benefits of a reduced buck harvest.
If hunters are truly interested in hunting opportunities, get into the woods and control the population by harvesting more does.
The only way to truly manage the herd, and assure that a good number of bucks reach maturity before being harvested, is to lower statewide or at least regionwide, limits on bucks.

Keep it a two buck limit but to shoot a second buck, you have to shoot a doe first.
You should still allow youth to harvest a buck and doe in youth season. I believe you need to make a second week for muzzleloader season just to shoot a doe.
The other thing that has always inhibited me from killing a doe or two is the time it takes to clean a deer and having to much meat in the freezer.
We need more places to take deer donations to “Hunters Against Hunger.” I have to drive almost an hour to donate a deer.
