Maine grows bucks that will rival deer anywhere but we have a lot of trees in the way. [Linked Image]

I have mounted a pile of 200 (dressed) pound bucks..........sort of. I have only killed one 200+ buck in my 51 years of deer shooting, a 205 lb 8 pt that was weighed on a scale, in front of witnesses too! of all those dozens of 200+ bucks I mounted over the years, only about 2% were legit. The rest were "weighed" by guess and by gosh.....usually after a long drag. Many of these deer would not have dressed even 140 lbs. I grew up thinking, like the old-time New England area trackers did, that it was the size of the buck, not it's antlers, that made it a whopper. To this day, I would rather tag another 200+ buck then shoot a buck with 10+ points. A buck with both would be icing on the cake! Congrats to you and your stepson Bruce, those are honest whopper Big Woods bucks! Well done.

Love those pictures of those Maine bucks. This story reminds me of the Hinkley Buck.

Heck yeah. Trophy by dressed weight. Id love it. All those extra burgers. I wouldn't need to shoot a doe if they grew that big around here.
