We have a older cull 8 who is blind in one eye that we named One-Eyed Willie. That got me thinking there must be some other funny deer names out there. What y’all got?

I had one that jumped the string on me and ended up with a 6” gash in his skin on the opposite side than I was aiming at. We named him Scarback.

We had a buck named OL because he was off limits for the first 2 years. Unfortunately he was killed by a collision with a school bus.

We have a doe whose right hind leg was injured two or three years ago. She is easily recognizable by a limp she has when she walks. We call her Gimpy.

I have a little 5 point that has one tine that shoots off all haywire behind his right ear about 5 inches; other than that he's a typical big 4 point. I nicknamed him Haywire.

One named “Flash” because a good friend of mine was going to take picture of him to make sure he was a shooter. Had him at twenty but forgot to turn off his flash. Busted him, hence Flash

Had one years ago on high fence place named. Obama because he got really big, really fast. Just like the man. Had to be careful when in town talking about shooting Obama. Lol.

My boy saw this buck in person, said it had a wonky rack.
So now "Wonky Donkey" is on his hit list.

We had a buck we named lucky.

Dad shot under him, wife back strapped him, then dad shot him in the scapula and knocked him over with x-bow. He finally died with a rifle on the second year of trying to shoot him.

I really don't like deer names, mostly because of hunting shows, but we end up with a few that stick.

This is "goal post".



That pic is from last year, and he looks exactly the same this year. I think he has a death wish, he begged me to kill him for 2 days during bow season, then stood in front of us for 15 minutes when Snoop was rifle hunting. I'm hoping he grows before next year.

Shot the front leg off a doe a number of years back. She made it just fine and we called her lucky. She raised twins that summer and earned herself the status of off limits. She dropped twins every year till age took its toll

We had this doe show up one year out of the blue with tags in each ear. Now mind you this is a low fence place. And when the rut hit she would be seen from one end of the ranch to the other. And she always had that roughed up walk of shame look to her and those ear tags like big ear rings. We named her “Skank”

We had Tom Brokeoff a few years ago. Tom was a potential shooter until he broke of his main beam shortly after hard horned. Had pictures of him in January, so he made through the season. Never saw him after that.

I had 1 I called Intramurals. He was a Big XII (12) pointer. For those that don't remember, look up Dan Hawkins Colorado rant.

I also had 1 I called goal posts. His brow tines curved out and for some reason I thought goal post was appropriate.

Called a yearling doe Spazz because everytime I saw her she was hauling bootay from some unknown reason. I watched her scrape a a pretty good sized flap of skin on the inside of
her rear leg trying to jump a fence.

Huggy Bear...old 12 point, my hunting buddy named him that because the deers limp made him "walk like a pimp"

Hollywood...big axis buck, i passed on him to let his antlers grow but never saw him again. Gorgeous deer.

Currently looking for good candidates for Papi Chulo and Belshazzar

The one doe that always comes into feeder extremely nervous and with her ears laid flat straight back. Always snorting, stomping and pacing around. Will have everyone on high alert. She definitely needs to go. I call her Laidback.
