I also have a friend who seems to take a very nice buck each year. In fact, the first whitetail he ever killed was a 13-point monster that made the Boone and Crockett record book. On the other hand, I have friends who don't have the quality of deer that I see, and they usually take bucks wearing their first sets of antlers. It took me four years before I killed a deer with antlers, and it was a young 5-point. Since then, I've taken six more antlered deer, only one of which carried more than 100 inches of antler. This past bow season, I was lucky enough to harvest a mature 10-point that had a net score of 148 6/8 inches.
