    When I harvest a buck I always name him. I know alot of you guys and gals do the same. I thought it would be interesting to hear the names that you have given the bucks you have harvested and even those that are still on the hoof but havent made it to your wall yet.

    My on the wall bucks include
    Phesant Cack, Wood duck overlook, Sacrifice, First climb, Sierras buck, Anniversary, 500, Bourjailys downpour, and BTB.

    Along with all of these names go special memories which fuel my obsession for this awsome creature.

    I'm new at some of this buck naming. Use to be a shotgun hunter with no cameras so we didn't see bucks till we had them running 100 mph through the timber. Now a bow hunter with several cameras, so it's a helluva lot more fun. So been naming them the last 2 or 3 years.

    Big Dog--Dead
    Neighbors buck--Dead
    Tipped up 8
    Wide 8
    Split brow tine--Dead
    Video buck
    11 1/2 pointer
    Big 9
    Big 9 from last year--Dead (now a 10 pt. that got an arrow Oct.5th)
    Kicker buck--Dead
    Tall 7
    12 with splits
    Broken up 8

    I started reading this post and thought for a second Typical 250's ban was lifted... then I looked at the year. Lol

    I name some after they're killed, some before and the vast majority still don't have names. I just try to use what is fitting and sometimes nothing fits.

    Names I've used:
    Triple D- three drops
    Sunshine- he always showed up in daylight
    Prince- he looked princely I guess
    Flyboy- big flyer
    Off sides - his sides didn't matchup

    Then there's always a ton of deer that are just "the big 8" or "the big ten" or "that narrow 8" or the dirty, spindly, thick, whatever 8. I've spent a lot of time thinking of buck names in the tree stand and half the time I inadvertently call the deer something else and it sticks.

    Naming bucks is a ton of fun and such an easy way to keep track of them. I don't have a ton of them but here's the list that I have named.

    Curly - Neighbor shot him in 2015.
