Default Big buck depictions

What are some of your favorite 'big buck' descriptions, depictions, illustrations, ...whatever you want to call them, over the years?
For example, my uncles and brother used to say this whenever they saw a buck that had sizable antlers, "that buck looked like he had a rockin' chair on his head!"

Keep in mind, these are NOT nicknames of big deer.

My buddies dad always called shooters "Frank buck," not sure why but we always thought it was funny.

We use donkey, shooter buck, or big body when we see a good one.

We had one on our lease we called “high rise”, one called “old crab claw”, and one called “dopey”, a cull spike that would snort and stomp his foot every time he saw corn on the ground—-he had been shot at and missed or nicked with arrows a couple of times and came in looking up into every tree around. He was a total basket case. He was so jittery and moved around so much it was impossible to get a shot at him with a bow.
