Did anyone else see that Quigleys in Fort Kent had a family (2 brothers and 1 of their wives) shoot 3 bucks within 3 days. They weighted in at 247, 233, and 205 for at total of 685lbs! The 247 was an 8pt and the other two were 10pts. The 233lber and 205lber both were shot on the same day and actually the 205lber was shot while getting the other one out of the woods. Quite the story. You can see the pictures on Quigleys Outdoors facebook page, but I find it hard to believe that it wouldn't have made the paper by now.

Dad's deer from Monday Morning. Spikehorn with 4.5" spikes. The deer walked right up to him and he shot it at 8 yards. He passed on a bigger buck the first week (4pt) but said that he just couldn't let this one walk. Something about shooting them on the snow  ;D He didn't weigh it but guessed that it was between 115-120lbs

good looking bucks boys! i passed on another small buck tonight. 7pt. quit work at 200. setting by 300and he came in at 3309, left and come back 15 minutes later. was w/ a doe. not harrassing her but not letting her leave him either. too small too soon still.

btw, do any of you boys tape your deer??? i carry one in each hunting coat. its accurate to 5lbs +/-. my father and i have done it for years and years and it has never been more then a few lbs either way. kind of a cool thing to do plus i know ahead of time what my deer is gonna weigh :P

Nice deer everyone. I had to look up taping weight, never heard of it before. Looks interesting, is this a similar scale to the one you use?

Is that to total length (nose to hoof) or just the length of the deer's core?
