Who is the Greatest Deer Hunter Ever?

There are some great deer hunters out there today for sure, many from the current who’s who of modern outdoor heroes and probably even more guys who hold down everyday jobs, flying beneath the media radar and tagging monster whitetails year-in and year-out. The question is, who’s the best?

When faced with such a decision, what criteria should be considered? Does the guy who shot a world record buck because he happened to be in the right place at the right time deserve the title, or is it the guy who heads to the woods and somehow manages to shoot the biggest deer in his county every year? Is it the hunter who hunts his own local woods and learns the area better than the deer itself, or is it the one who travels around the country wisely seeking out those places that harbor the biggest, baddest trophies in the record books?

And speaking of record books, many hunters don’t even enter their deer, making it practically impossible to know they exist. And finally, is it necessarily someone we’ve all heard of, such as an outdoor TV celebrity? My money says the “best deer hunter” is probably some guy who works in a factory, fixes cars, frames houses or farms and that few, if any of us, have ever heard of.

      Naahh !! Shot at too close range without a license using a nubby doesn’t count !! Now if a .45 1911 A-! had been used, it would have been a different story especially when he drew first shot !!

    just about the stupidest thing i have ever heard of, hunting is not a competition, or it shouldn’t be. it is taking of life to sustain life…it is a personal thing…yep i got a big one on the wall but i ate him too. all burger cause he was an old joker…something about this just takes away from the sport of hunting…hunting is a gentleman’s sport there should be a reverence about it.
