How many folks here have a book deer? Dont give a rat's arse bout any pen raised deer. I want to see how many guys here have a legit book deer. Entered or not. I have 3 P&Y deer hanging on my wall but havent been lucky enough to break the Booner line. I have been lucky enough to see 2 book deer on the hoof. One in 2011 in Pike County, IL as he would have been well over 200" and I saw one driving down the road in Kansas last year...Bad thing is, I saw him 2 days in a row in the same spot. He was somewhere around the 190" mark, typical.

So, when and where did you shoot it?

I don't think I have even seen one that would be a legit booner, as in not behind a fence etc.

I haven't ever seen one either. Biggest I've seen is a 164" 11 point, that still haunts he today. I missed and another lease member got him a week later, that was way back in 1997.

I have only seen one B&C deer free range - was in high school and he was in the bar ditch with a doe. Small town and I knew everyone who lived in the area. Not one ever saw him that I know of.

Have a muley that meets awards minimum, grossed for all-time, but the G2s killed him. Still waiting on the WT and have my eye on one that may get the job done if he can manage to stay under a rock.

The 1 I saw in Illinois was obviously a booner, no doubt he would have went over 200". Words cant describe how massive this deer was. I saw him 2 days in a row in the same spot from my stand. He was on the neighbors property about 100 yards away. Between the 2 times I saw him, I got to watch him for about 10 minutes total. The one I saw last year in KS would have been borderline but he was huge. I would have been proud of him on my wall!

I've seen a few that would have grossed over 170". Maybe a handful

All high fence but native genetics. One was on a ranch where no one had stepped foot in in 5 years

watched these two for a few years and ended up having hunters take both on the same night.. not sure what NT books is but the bigger one was 181 and the typical was 167.. prolly wouldn't actually make it with deductions... he was missing about 8 inches of tine when he was shot also

That's not all time thsts just the awards correct?

I'm not a fan of the net score rules I believe if the deer grew it it should count symmetry be damned

its 170" net for the all time

a 165" deer is still a big deer


People nowadays look at a 170" buck as being somewhat mediocre but you have to remember when the minimums were founded the set that as a RECORD, not something easily achieved. I know guys with big low fence ranches that will pass up 170" bucks to get a 190" or 200" but a 170" whitetail is a giant deer, any way you cut it
