I don't get to hunt every single day. A 100" 8 point will make me grin bigger than anything. I killed a 167lb 3 point Cowhorn when I was 11. So your going to try to tell me he was a "young deer"? And it was on scales too, not an est weight.
I realise that we "could" have bigger deer here in NC. But I'm not going to pass on a 120" deer because of "what he could be next year". A 120" deer would have his place on my wall. I couldn't care less what other states think about good ole' NC. I love hunting here, and won't change the way I hunt because someone else thinks I should, and other people shouldn't either IMO.
