Big Bucks

I forget where I heard the phrase 'big bucks' that sparked this comic, but I think it has always brought a deer image to my mind. Now I want to find the origin of the phrase. So bucks are slang for dollars, which is kinda common knowledge, but apparently that could be due to people trading deer skins for goods, which made them a type of money. So the big bucks are worth more, since that's how commodities work. So that makes sense I think.

A: The biggest deer come from your forest.
B: Yeah, I raise the big bucks.
