    Mine was when my biggest ever archery kill buck came in to my decoy.

    But I'd rather hear about yours. Doesn't have to be connected to a kill...could be just the story of two bucks fighting nearby or a pair of fawns frolicking under your stand.

    I managed to kill the best one I encountered last year. It is about the largest I have taken in 28 years of bow hunting.

    The most special thing about him is he only has 6pts. I have only personally seen two larger and they were both already on the dirt. I have not "scored" him becasue all that is no longer important to me (once was, but I out grew that hunting stage). His horns are very heavy for a Texas hillcountry buck and it has great height.

    I'll post up a pic...but I'll have to do that from the house...most all the hosting sites are blocked from us at work.

    Not the best photo.

    Disclaimer: I am not against hunting for score, just got to point that it is not longer my main objective.

    Handsome deer. My son shot a 3 x 3 mulie a few years ago that was bigger than the point count would sound.

    Best Muley

    I got this guy 15 days after I got the whitetail (11/23/03). He had a 29 1/8" outside spread.
