Great bow bucks trophy 8.
Excuse me. Rifle kills. Muleys are the only deer I've shot over 135". Shoulda specified. Killed a pile of animals with a bow. Never a big whitetail. Several 110-130

I have a 136" 10 point that I got with a recurve several years ago. He is still the biggest buck I have ever shot!

Thanks but I am more proud of the 148 & 146 because they came from Hamilton county on a small place with lots of pressure. 2 bucks in 18 years of grinding em out! The other bucks came from Uvalde county. We had 1800 acres with big neighbors - dream place !

Not sure if I'd be able to draw back. I still get excited with does with my bow but not really with my rifle. Bow just intensifies it all for me

I have one that scares 150, two others that will not break 120, those two are both 6-8 years old, they are my best trophies, that score does not mean much to me anymore, age is where it all is. Some of the doe I have taken also make me very proud, an alpha doe can be hard to get an arrow in.

Good thread, have one score 141 that I got from Kinney County in 2008. (also my avatar).

Shot a buck in Wisconsin last year, was dang proud of him. Was hoping he would go Pope and Young, but he was only like 126" gross, so don't think he would make book. Only regret with him was not having a scale to weigh him, he was a big ole buck!

That must be a very deceiving picture of that whitetail because it definitely looks like it would score more than 142". Both beautiful deer!

It is weak in the main frame measurements, spread and short G4s.
But G2s are 12 in.

I would have felt a lot better about myself had I not clicked on this thread. Congrats to everyone who posted pics lots of bone. Hopefully next year when I return from Illinois I will get on the board with my first one. I have this one but he scored 133" my cousin is a taxidermist and he scored him.
