The animal that's in my sights at the time I release or squeeze .
If I'm not proud to take the animal I don't .

I've been hunting for about 17 years now and have shot a lot of deer. In the last 4-5 years I have been able to help 4 different hunters(friends and family) get their first deer. Two doe, a button buck and a four point. Those 4 deer are the best trophies I have.

To me, a trophy would be any buck that dressed-out over 190 lbs or so...antler points are not as important to me as body mass and antler mass. But that's just me. I have a 9 point on the wall that was a very big boy...his main beams are thicker than a baseball bat and he has some riser tines over 10"

For does I'd call it a trophy if it dressed out over 160 or so

I do like to eat em' !!!

whatever i just put in the back of my truck, that's my trophy, be it a skipper, doe, or mature buck. that's the way it's supposed to be viewed, at least in my opinion.

Around here, any deer. Period. If it's got horn it's even better. But any deer is here.

I refuse to pull the trigger or hit the release unless its a trophy. So any deer i kill is a trophy regardless of size.

A trophy buck to me...... over 150" but I've seen and taken alot of bucks that score less then this, but have alot of character (heavy mass, stickers, drops) that are pretty impressive looking bucks. 150" is where I like to start at, but I'll shoot something smaller if hes mature and has character.....

I would consider a trophy buck to be an 8-Pointer. But thats because around here you dont see many bigger deer than that. Granted any deer is special to me but thats what i would consider a true trophy.
