At of curiosity where was this big boy shot?Longbow,
I know the story as he told it, he became a little frustrated with the way the whole thing went down. He was told too long after he weighed it about the scale not being a certified scale and by that time it was too late to weigh it again. Yes, it was field dressed before he weighed it. Currently it ranks #128th largest non-typical in the state of Maine. He shot it at about 15 yards while sitting in one of his favorite spots. I had gone up and hunted this place with him several years prior to this and never went back as it took me 2 days to find a deer track! Not many deer, but he always told me that some day he was going to shoot a big buck there. Unfortunately I don't have any other photos than the one I posted.
