My buck-fever was finally conquered early Saturday morning 12/3/2016. I harvested my first nice buck (after many failed attempts due to my crippling Buck Fever). I caught this dude checking a scrape line, came in at 20 yards. I couldn't be happier! I know he's not a monster but I would like to get y'alls guesses on the score. I'm thinking low 100s. His spread was at 14 1/2 inches. I would have scored him but he's already at the taxidermist grin

Thanks and Happy Hunting!

Nice deer. I don't think the buck fever ever goes away. If it does its time to start playing tennis or something. Congtats.

That's AWESOME!!! He will always be special to you, no matter what he scores. I am not the greatest guesser, but I think you are very close. I would guess 105 +- 5 inches.

Thanks everyone, learned ALOT from reading the forums on Serious Deer Talk last year and this year. Find the acorns and scrapes before the first freeze and you find the deer!

Congrats!! It's a good feeling when you conquer it. When I first started trying to be selective,I got into a slump and missed like 3 or 4 good bucks. Finally,I was able to connect and haven't looked back since. I still get buck fever now,just getting better at managing it. Heck,I even get doe fever when I got a bow in my hand

I totally agree! Nothing like the heart pounding when you first see a doe or buck. Completely froze in my stand when a 10 point ran bye a few years ago, I missed a 7 point last year, and shot over a nice 8 with my bow during bow season. After the bow miss, I told myself if I saw another buck I was gonna have to get a grip LOL
