I have been fortunate enough to have killed plenty of deer. As far as score and what I consider a trophy took until this year to get a 175" buck. It seemed I couldn't get anything better then a 160". While out just looking in hard to draw areas with extremely good trophy quality the 170"-190" are always around but I can never draw those areas. I agree with Montana to be able to kill a 170"+ buck consistently each year is very doubtful without paying the big bucks. I'm sure there are guys out there that do it but not me.
