Hey Everyone! First post on this forum !

I was curious of some of the users records here on the forum and if anyone was able of catching a 6x6 deer.

17 points is my best. I'm not sure if that was your question.

5X5 and 6X6 and lots of them. Don't need any more horns. Have also got a few non typical with palmate antlers and a few old unicorns.

Not really that rare but usually older and harder to kill.

What's most sought after then? More points the better, or something unusual?

I don't worry about it that much. I chase mature bucks that are hard to kill and elude most hunters. Some times they have 8 points and sometimes they have 20......Some times I get them and some times I don't.

Thanks for responding! When you hear 6x6 do you initially think of a deer or do you think of blind plans?

I'd consider a typical 6x6 whitetail at least somewhat rare. A lot of monster white tail deer get shot but even though it happens frequently; compared to the amount of people that hunt deer not many have 6x6 typical's on their walls. Generally you see 10 or 8 pointers. Although when you consider non-typicals which are less common then typical's, but tend to have a bunch of little antler beams all over the place it really racks up the count.
