Do you name your Bucks?

My hunting party has a habit of naming deer that have any interest to us, from bucks we have harvested to ones we see spotting they have even come so common to us that we refer to land location with them.

Does any one else do this?

I never have other than naming them things like Big 8 or little 9 etc.  So nothing too creative really.  I do however hunt on a large land holding that the property owner names nearly all the bucks, it's under pretty intense management for older age class bucks.  Thus there is a need to name the bucks to be able to inform all the hunters of which ones are of shooter age class.

We name our bucks that we have on our list. We usually give them a name that matches a characteristic on their rack or body.

names

We know the bucks around by there names and locations, if I ever got stuck or needed held by using there name would give one of our hunting partners a real good idea of where I was.

   Has anyone seen the commercial on the outdoor channel. This guy gives his buck names of things like Foot Doctor. Then he says to his wife he has to take his dad to see the Foot Doctor. It is a pretty funny commercial.
