I believe that is probably correct. Landowners may be allowed a second in KS? No idea on that. But, I also believe states like Pennsylvania and some others that have crappy age structure are also one buck states with rifles allowed. Michigan has crappy buck hunting and I believe they are only allowed a second buck with point restrictions. Point being, its the pressure allowed and what dates of the calendar the gun seasons fall on, not the weapons used. Even though I am allowed to kill three bucks each year, I don't think I ever have unless I had an old warrior or cull that I wanted gone. Two mature bucks a year was always enough and probably what it should be. I always figured if I got two of my top end bucks I had a great year and that the rest had a good chance to make it to the next year and become something extraordinary. A few times that actually paid off big. The only reason I have ever seen given against a weapon of any type is the same; A veiled argument about the herd health that really translates to fear that someone else will kill one of "my" bucks. Fact. Again, Iowa's herd management is for health and opportunity, not for trophy management. Its all the Johnny-come-lately's that have imposed their wishes on the Iowa DNR and confuse our low hunting pressure with management for older bucks. Not true at all or we would never be allowed to kill three bucks per year. They moved here because of low hunting pressure, not because of monster buck specific management.
