deer nicknames

As soon as hunting season sneaks up on us, we all begin daydreaming about the giant buck that could end up hanging on the wall. Many hunters, namely those who set up trail cameras long before opening day, are keeping tabs on a particular buck that stands out from the rest. Typically, the difference between our target buck and the other potential shooters is a matter of size, but every so often it’s the a unique feature in the buck’s antlers that demands our attention.

Perhaps it’s the infinite number of ways a deer’s antlers can grow that makes hunting them so addicting, as a buck’s headgear can tell such a colorful story. And, because of this, many hunters will give nicknames to the deer they’re after, igniting a long game of cat and mouse that we’ll remember long after the season comes to an end. However, to properly honor such an epic chase, the moniker you give your deer has to be fitting, and more importantly, it has to be memorable.

If you’re still watching a target buck, or perhaps you’ve already taken one that still deserves a good name, we’re here to help with 65 awesome buck names we came up with. Maybe the buck you’ve spotted on trail cameras has some nice kickers, a one-of-a-kind crab claw, or maybe it just has the widest frame you’ve ever seen. No matter the characteristics that inspire your choice, just make sure it fits.
