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.
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.
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.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
