Default RE: 2 More Massachusetts Deer

ORIGINAL: Western MA Hunter

It is really tough to tell in the pic... Maybe mid 130s? Can't see too much of him.

One of my does was 115lb, the smaller was 72lb,the 6 was 135lb, and the 3 was 132lb!
I got to the deer and was sure he'd go 130-140 dressed. Threw him on the scale at B & G and he was only 111lbs!! I still can't believe it, when I look at the pictures.I guess he could be rutted out and all. He had been working the mtn hard and had three broken tines from fighting. they say a buck can drop 25% of his weight during rut, so that would make him about 138 pre-rutwhich is more "right". I think the deer is 3.5 YO but it was never aged..
