yeah but i got a plan, time, and a couple tricks on my side. so that means i'll have about a 2% chance of getting him. got a couple pics of him at like 11 pm. i think he's hold up all day in a hundred acre clear cut that you'd need a dozen beagles, a match and ten gallons of gas to get him out of.... or a challenger or hot doe.

ronn thats a nice buck and he looks nice on the weight. How does he stand up to the average buck in your area? Oh, good luck on the big travel hunt coming up soon.

everyone wants a 200 lb field dressed and the odds are preety good. like most places the highest percent of bucks shot are only 1 1/2 years old. a 3 1/2 year old buck could range from 150 to 200 lbs dressed. the mount i had done wieghted in at 196 shot on thanksgiving and the avatar buck was 189 during the rut. i,m guessing the deer in the pic will go 170ish dressed. there is a rumor that a few years back a 305 dressed was taken and 250's and up are shot every year.

A good PA buck in our area will weigh 125-135 lbs field dressed. We generally scale weigh our bucks just to track their weights over the years.

That's a nice buck man. A heck of a bow kill if you can get 'em. Also, I'm one of those people who believe that if that's what you are seeing, there are several bigger than that, that you aren't seeing...could be a great season for yoa.

Shoot straight my friend!
