Default Big Tennessee Buck

This buck was supposiedly taken back in my home town in west TN. My buddy sent me the picture this morning. The guy got it during our first muzzeloader season (last week) Tennessee can grow some BIG deer but you just have to work for em.

Also, this year I have noticed many of our deer are getting bigger bodied. My dad shot a good seven the other day that field dressed at 190lbs.

you are right, they can grow some big ones but guys need to stop shooting them as little ones to see those results. same problem across the country.

As long as the little one's are legal to shoot, it's always going to be tough finding them big ones.
But then again there are some guys that hunt every year and consistantly pull 140's and up off public hunting lands, year after year after year.
Those are the real hunting pro's in my book.

Default I agree

I agree that people need to stop shooting little bucks. This past week I passed up a 7pt (suppose to be an 8 but had a broken brow tine) that would've scored at least 125. He was a 3 1/2 yr old deer. The next day I saw several spikes, 4s, and 6s. Then I saw a 9pt but he would've only gone 100-110. He was a 2 1/2 yr old buck. The following day I saw a different 7pt that wouldve went 120.

I was telling one of my buddies about this and he had the reaction of most people....SHOOT 'EM. I hate this mindset because that is what keeps big bucks from ever forming....if it has horns, shoot they say .... I have passed up several good deer in hopes that more monsters will start manifesting themselves around our property.
