    Not to be confused with your biggest because they may not be the same. Maybe not even one you took yourself.
    Lets hear about the deer you are most proud of.

    My first, no doubt. Killed a 11 pointer in 1984 on public land. Not very big, but it didn't matter. My first buck...... He's now a cyborg in a friend's little hunting cabin. Squirrels and mice have about eaten all the hide off. They don't use the cabin any more. I told him this past weekend I'd like to have it back... They didn't have a mount in the cabin when they built it. I gave it to him for luck... Every hunting cabin needs a deer mount....

    Without a doubt, his first deer. Ive killed a lot of critters over the years. Had alot of fun,excitement and alot of memories. But, nothing compares to this one. Thinking back, I never knew what pure, unfiltered joy and excitement was until that day.

    First deer on My grandpas farm. Spent many hours fishing with him in his pond on his farm growing up, he was my favorite person as a little boy growing up. I was in college at UK engineering school, each year I could see him going down hill...but he told me I want to see u graduate college and that’s all he ask of me. Well I graduated December 2006, came home and sadly January 2009 my papaw past away...I felt like he held on just long enough to see me graduate college. well he’d left me a precious gift...left me his 45 acre farm, house, and 7 acre pond I grew up fishing in. that fall is ran cameras and had a small plot in a field edge on the place and had a couple nice bucks I’d like to shot. September 10 evening a nice 140” 11 point steps out, full velvet and I put him down. he now hangs on my wall in my grandpas Ol house right next to a painted pic of my grandpa sporting his Shriners presidential fuzz and suit. that deer will always mean the most to me.

    It's hard to pick. Every one is a great memory. Many are deer where I was only a witness and not the shooter.

    Mine would have to be the one in my avatar. A close second would be a big 9 pointer my dad killed in 1966.
    He field dressed 260 pounds they had just opened season in 1964
    No one knew much about deer i remember they thought however many points they had was how old they were
    I remember they hung that big 9 up and dad cut his throat right up against his head like they did hogs No one knew much about it around here back then

    Mine is a half racked five point. Mature deer had the other side broke off from fighting. But it was the first year dad let me scout out my own spot, hang a stand and hunt it, also the first year I passed up deer. I wanted a buck. I Sit til 1 on the opening day of gun season that year and here he cane right down the ridge where I had scouted. Heart shot him. Dad came to check and there I was with my buck. Good memory, I Dj t even have the rack anymore.

    Probably the couse i shot Nov 4th. The country it was in, the work involved, the long range shot across canyon. And to top it off, it's a B&C couse as a 6 pt. Won't make the All Time book (110"), but will make the two yr record book (100"). Will get it officially measured early Jan.

    I saw that rack in person, the pic doesn't do the mass justice on that deer! Super Cous deer. And no I am not the game warden that pulled him over! :)
