Just curious what everyone's dream deer is? That deer that you'd be fine with killing and never killing another buck after.

Here's mine a 140"+ 6pt I'd do a lot to get a deer like that on my wall!!!

A big free range muley! Only because that will probably be my first paid hunt of my lifetime. I have never paid to even go on a dove hunt before.

AR state record typical killed last year. I love long tines and clean racks so I'd pick one similar. Doubt I'll have to worry much about it though!

I honestly can't say. I've never even gotten a look at a deer like some of the guys around here seem to kill every year. I think I'd just lose my mind over a 140" 8 point. I love to hunt. I don't think I could kill a deer that would make me just give it up.

Killed both mine last year, whitetail and muledeer. I will say I'm kinda tired of whitetail but still go through the motion every year hunting them. Those big Texas muledeer is where it's at for me. Can't get enough of them

My grandpas Muley scored 219" free range probably 35 yrs ago. It's the only thing I asked for whenever the day comes it's no longer in use. Great deer and even better man I idolize him, and drool everytime I see that buck. Makes me think of him when I see him envy doesn't scratch the surface!

My dream buck is easy, I want a archery Pope and Young off my FIL land. 125" or better and I will be happy. Had a chance 2 years ago had a good buck at 15 yds but never had a shot.

I was able to kill my dream Muley last year. 200"+ typical free range with the bow. Not sure on whitetail. Something with a clean frame and double drops would probably work.

You start hunting mule deer you will want very little to do with whitetail anymore.

I'll still bow hunt them a little but it's just to pass the time until the day after thanksgiving when I head west

There's no such deer for me. I enjoy the hunt too much to kill my dream deer and say I'm done.

My goal is ever changing but as of now it's to kill a mid 140's deer off of my little ole post oak region deer lease. To put that into perspective, IMO it's like killing a 170's class deer from a LF south Texas ranch.

IN my country 140's and the occasional 150 is killed every year but there very few and far between.

A free ranging 160+" slick 8 point is mine. I would be done hunting WT trophies if I could pull that off.

I most likely will die trying.
