    In a large part of America there resides a species of Deer called the Whitetail... Large herds and many hunters make this a beneficial relationship for keeping healthy herds....

    There are very few TROPHY Whitetails taken each year, let alone the massive bucks that are State Records or even Pope and Young (Archery) or Boone and Crockett (Everything else) Ranked Bucks...

    This thread is to educate some of u members from outside the States and some of my lesser edumacated countrymen to my favorite Big Game animal.... Some of the trophy deer below are MONSTERS....

    Below is a pic of a standard 8 pointer, 4 tines on each side atleast 1" in length, a great trophy for ANY hunter with bow or gun.......

    There are 2 classes of ranking, Typical and Non-typical...

    Typical bucks usually have the same number of points on each side and look extremely identical in shape to the other side....

    Non-typical usually have some sort of deformity and their racks are very impressive and massive...

    Below is the World Record Typical Buck in Archery....

    First is Mel Johnsons' Pope and Young Buck, taken in Illinois in 1965, which scored 204 1/2....

    Great stuff Dan. Some of those are spectacular. When I was growing up fellow neighbor and friend got a record whitetail in the early 60's. His name is Peter Frank Crocker and the buck had 36 point. I don't remember the spread but the rack was not very picturesque. If I remember correctly it weighed close to 350 lbs.

    I used to go quite often, but havent been able to go since moving down here to Mississippi...

    Without proper Conservation, most deer herds would be wiped out from starvation and disease would be a large problem...

    Not to mention all the other species that depnd on deer -either dead or alive. Circle of Nature.

    and I think people would be surprised at how much hunters contribute to the community good - how many parks and natural areas that are almost totally funded through hunting fees and licenses. And those that protest against hunting, in my view, are morons.
