Sitting here at work watching a deer hunting video and they were talking about racks, and started wondering whats everyones biggest deer either points or total score or weight. My best buck was a small basket 9 pointer, never had it scored. I did get a 4.5 yr old doe. Weight wise she was about 185 lbs on the hoof.

my first...

My first and biggest was a nice 8pt. I got last year. 20" spread and close to 300lbs. One shot with a muzzleloader on opening day of Indiana gun season. It was huge. Most exciting hunt yet!:D

Biggest Antlers 10 pt.about 125", biggest doe 149# dressed, biggest buck 161# dressed (not the 10 pt. above).

How 'bout smallest?

Mine: WV, butt'n 68# dressed

Had one come in for processing this year that was (and I'm not kidding) 47# dressed.

161 gross 14pt that was 215 lbs. I also took a 126 gross 8 pt and 115 gross 9 pt off the same land. My little gold-mine! However, the prettiest deer on my wall was my first, a doe, when I was 15....about 11 years ago! I can still remember that day!!

Stacker,

My nephew shot a doe in Vinton County with a bow that had a hanging weight of 32#. He was standing there holding it like you would a rabbit. It was unbelievable!

Got my biggest just this Nov. 9. Shot him with my trusty Martin. He scores right at 140. Not the biggest Ive had an oppurtunity at but the biggest I ve taken. The bigguns are a lot harder to hit than the small ones.....LOL

I know what you mean Lance, I missed two 140+ bucks with my bow within an hour of each other this year. I completly undershot the first one and was so upset with myself I didn't even see the second come by about an hour later. Had a shot and killed a nice limb I didn't see. Wasn't prepared at all for the second one.

Smallest deer: I lived in Louisiana for 6 years and the deer run a little smaller there. I saw one guy with deer that at first I thought he had shot a dog, like a small collie. He picked it up with one hand and held it up. He was actually proud of it.

My best is a 140 4/8 in 10 pt taken with a compound in 2000. In 2001 I shot a 126 1/8 inch 8 pt and in 2002(this yr) I shot a 125 7/8 inch 10 pt. These buck weighed 195 dressed, 205 dressed and 170 dressed. I've also taken several small 8's with 12-14 inch spreads before I started gettin choosy...All these deer were taken with a browning compound....

My biggest deer I took on my friends farm. It was an * point and weighed 180lbs. It was a big bodied deer. Shot it at about 20 yards quartering away. Shot it with my Oneida Aero Force bow and arrow tipped with a 100 gr. Thunderhead. Pass though like butter. Went down about 50 yards away. I didn't have to money to mount the head so I just put the antlers on the wall. But will try to get a head for the wall in the future.;) :)

I had a huge buck that I counted 10 points on real quick so maybe more maybe less but it was really big and it was twenty yards from me walking towards a shooting lane when a trespasser on an ATV came by and scared it before I got a shot.
