“Name-That-Buck” Contest: Top 20 Names to Make You Laugh

Out of almost 1,300 responses, here are the top 20 names people gave to this buck.

First, a little backstory on how all this came about. The folks at The Hunting Page decided it would be a good idea to share this photo on Facebook and request some help naming the buck. Boy, did they get all the help they could handle! I decided to go through the almost 1,300 comments and pick the top 20 names that people left.

Here’s the full photo that was posted. The top 20 names are listed below!
