    Ok so the deer I've been seeing are all tall solid mass but about a inch inside the ears. I call it a basket rack! Is there anything I can do to legally to help these bucks to grow wider in hopes to make them legal for next season?

    -Until they get much older(6+ years), the antlers generally get bigger each year so many of those deer could be legal next year even if you do not do anything.
    -Unless you have a big property and can plant multiple food plots there is not much you can do.

      Well dang!
      Most of the deer I have seen were from about 3-4.5 years old. They have been this way for most of their lives or so other hunters on the lease have told me.
      The property is not big enough to handle multiple food plots. Its only about 200 acers mainly of woods.

        -Even at 3 or 4 years old they can still be on the incline.
        -In 200 acres of woods a big buck may work his way in there at any time, so don't get down on it. I know what you mean about those small racked deer. Here is Missouri there isn't a spread requirement, but a point requirement(one antler must have at least 4 points). Because of this, we have a ton of young bucks around here that we can not legally shoot. I have seen multiple deer that only had 3 points that were older/out-weighed most of the deer I have shot over the years.

          things like trophy rock and other miniral licks are spose to help with antler growth. here in missouri as long as it is removed 15 days before hunting deer in the area around it, and this year you must be outside of the CWD containment zone because it will concentrate deer in the area. if desease is a problem in your area CWD, blue tongue, etc id suggest not doing it. things like this would need to be put out spring-summer while the antlers are growing.

            We use Lucky Buck mineral in the summer, and while I don't know if it actually increases antler size like the company claims, it can't hurt. But be sure to check your hunting regs before using. Other than that, there's not much you can do, other than let the deer get fully mature - 4.5+ - before trying to hunt them.

              We culled the basket rack deer and let the 'normal' shaped rack deer grow and started taking more does. eventually, 5+ years, the basket racks were gone and we were seeing more good bucks.
