The 2015 season is underway and many of you have already added some fresh venison to your freezer. But for those of you carefully glassing tines, tallying points and saving your shot for the bruiser with serious headgear, we're here to help.
Last month, we released the part 1 of the Game & Fish 2015 Deer Forecast to give you an in-depth look at the overall health of practically every state's deer population.
We provided hunters with detailed harvest reports and key herd developments, as well as projections for which regions and counties would most likely be home to the this year's best success stories.
Now, we're taking an in-depth look at how well these states are shaping up to fill the tags and hopes of trophy deer hunters.
With the special insight from our investigation, you'll get a better understanding of how a state's record history, trends in genetics and general habitat conditions of trophy deer over the past years have come together to make or break a formula for trophy racks in 2015.
