Bruce, a big THANKS from a former Vermonter. I met Larry once quite a few years ago. He really knew how to hunt whitetails!

OneHorse, I was able to talk with Larry for a total of about 35 seconds because he was so overwhelmed with people greeting him and his sons...

Larry spoke with us Friday night at his seminar at the Yankee Sportsman Classic and let me tell you that man at 82 years old is still able to outhunt the best of us, still hunting, and still bagging the 200+ pound trophy's,,, On one video "Tracking Big Bucks with the Benoits" at 76 years old Larry not only shoots another trophy whitetail but dresses and drags it himself.. "God Bless Him"...

Throughout the years the Benoits have consistantly gone into remote wilderness areas of Vermont, Maine and NH and because of their tracking skills they were able to pull out some of the largest whitetail deer those areas had to offer, these are public land fair chase hunters and every year they do it again and again and again.
I've read their books, I've seen their Video's I've met the Benoits personally and I can say without hesitation anyone wanting to improve their hunting skills or develop the skills to track and be able to harvest trophy Whitetails should read their books and watch their Videos.

Bruce,
I heard Larry give a talk on his hunting techniques in Readsboro about 30 years ago. Some drunken clown in the audience started heckling Larry about him poaching deer, etc. So, Larry asked him if he wanted to go outside and discuss it. At which point, the idiots friends took him home.
You see a lot of "experts" out there who use guides and gimmicks to hunt deer, and then they write books, but when it comes to one-on-one deer hunting by tracking, no one beats the Benoits... at least in my opinion. Oh, and they're pretty good at shutting up hecklers, too!

Bruce, this is obviously not a Benoit deer, but I am trying to use the insert image feature and using this as a test. Also, this is the last deer I killed in Vermont and, as you can see (I hope) a huge doe.

That doe is a monster doe, WOW! Does the Benoit show ever come close to WNY at all. I've never heard of them until this forum but I sure would like to attend an event.
