HH,
I do not care WHAT you or ANYONE else kills, as long as it is LEGAL and makes you happy.


Exactly! I have killed much smaller deer too! I have killed smaller deer by accident in the last few years and smaller deer alot when I was younger.

I just meant if I came in way low, it might offend someone. A deer is what he is and we can't change that.
That is about as pretty of a buck as you will ever find!


I have to agree with these post and it makes a good point. I hunt in an area in E. TN that is probably hunted all year long by the locals.... It doesn't stop me from hunting and reaching my GOALS... I have never worried about what the next guy is killing. I hunt because that's what I grew up doing in Florida and my family owns a hunting business. My point is that I have always wondered why some are worried about buck limits or what the next guy is doing.

This is a great statement.... "I do not care WHAT you or ANYONE else kills, as long as it is LEGAL and makes you happy."

The way I feel and sorry if I hijacked this thread a little but you guys were making good sense.

I have never had one of my bucks aged or scored.... They just have to past the eye test and the older I get, the worst my eyes are.... \:\)

122 is my guess

OK...I am stealing that line about the eye test.

I agree. Also, after having reached and surpassed every goal I ever had in regards to killing deer numbers, deer age, antler size, weapon type, etc, etc. I just want to hunt and have fun and live through the eyes of the youngsters I am now helping to get into hunting.

After all, everyone needs to enjoy this sport. I hope it NEVER goes away. It has been very good to me and I want as many as is reasonable to simply participate.

Some great racks...keep them coming.

Also some great examples of REAL bucks.

(BTW, I just watched a show called The Chase. This pretty woman and her husband went bow hunting at Timber Ghost Ranch. It was a high Fence Deal.

They were very excited about their 5000 inch racked bucks. They seem very happy. That is good for them. I just didn't get it.

Post the bucks WITH the score BH. Thanks.
But I will be glad to see ANY buck pics at all. If someone wants us to guess, that is fine too.

The point here is to learn.
Still haven't seen too many of all those 130, 140, 150 inchers.

Come on BH...let 'er rip!
