I'm sure this has been discussed before but I have run into some big buck down in the flats around power lines. Has anyone else had the same experience or might it just be coincidence?

I have, but no more than the other areas in the same vicinity. Newer powerlines have great new growth in the ROW that they love to eat, which could help explain it.

New Growth is a good a point. It depends on where you are talking!

If it is thick, then the power line opens up country and provide them with more open ground which they seem to like!

On wide open dessert country, I have seen the deer and antelope both seek out the shade of the poles to bed in!
