Probably average around 5 seen a year. Six this year with a couple others in the 100-110 range, two tagged and haven't been out since mid November for deer either.

Different 120" bucks or how many times seeing the same buck 120" buck from stand? This year I had three come through in one day, then saw two of the same bucks a few days later. I would say 5-6 different 120s on private land in western WI this year, but some are 2.5 years olds that just have nice scoring racks; none where I hunt in SE WI this year, also private land.

2 here in Louisiana. I have figured that each year I will have at least 2 opportunities at 120' buck a season. Its difficult but hard work pays off

Saw three this year. Which is more than usual. One to two is about my average. Some years I'll see four to five but that would be a really great year. This is all in Delaware and Maryland.

When I go from NY to SD and NE, and then to IA, and back over to MA, I wind up seeing a few. :mrgreen:

I would have to say 2-3 which are bucks I could realistically hunt in central and south eastern WI. I see others but are usually due to random encounters while driving through areas I normally do not have access to hunt.
