I have three bucks with my bow 135, 150, then 179 last year. I progressed up the score sheet nicely over the years, although it may be hard to beat the last one.

I love these threads that say "who's killed an 8 150 or over" or "who's killed a deer over 135."

There are so many comments like "scored as an 8" he is 157"..... does he have eight points or not, if not why post? Several people on here are posting deer under 135.....why?

Maybe I shouldn't care --- rant over.
