Not yet. I've got one about 120" but I'm no where close to my buck of a lifetime IMO.

Never will unless I stumble upon a 250" typical..My goals increase every year.

With the way we feed and manage deer herds these days they just keep getting better!

I would hate to ever think that. I think it would take alot of the fun out of it for me. For me, hope springs eternal, and there is always the chance "HE" might show up. No matter how big a buck I have on the wall, I would always like to think the next better might come along. Now I know there reaches a point where that is extremely unlikely, but I ain't there yet!

We had a kid (16) up here a couple years ago shoot a real free range 192" buck. Where do you go from there? I think about one of my boys doing that, and well, it would make me sad thinking that they could hunt the rest of their life and never top it. In a way I feel sorry for him.

"Deer of a lifetime" doesn't HAVE to be the "biggest"

Doesn't even have to be a buck.

I haven't even seen my buck of a lifetime yet. Possibly saw a 150 incher a few years ago and that's the biggest I've ever seen, but that was on the way into the stand for an afternoon hunt. I guess I have shot a non-typical buck (not because of kicker points, but because of a moose-like webbing) so that's pretty cool, but that Buck of a Lifetime is still out there!

No. I have not even seen my "deer of a lifetime". I am working on it however.

Iprobably have gotten the best caribou I ever will though.

I havent. One of these days a main frame 10 point with a drop tine on each side will walk out under my stand and make me the happiest hunter in the world.

But then again, i might never see such an animal[:@]
