The long term effects of this drought, because of very low reproduction this year, is essentially a loss of age class. That means in 5-6 years, there will be few to no mature bucks. And if the weather stays dry through the winter and spring of 2012, we could have back-to-back drought years. That would mean the loss of basically two years worth of age class.
