I dont think his hand is open. He's holding it up by the brow tine.

Here's one we shot on one of our Illinois leases last year that was estimated at 300+ pounds dressed and although blurry, Ican assure you the pic is real. The lucky hunter goes about 170. We had one about 9 years ago that weighed 348 on a certified scale dressed out.

One such buck in Maine's rich deer-hunting history met and surpassed even the wildest dreams of a 59-year-old hunter back in 1955. Horace R. Hinckley did what no other hunter has been able to match since, by shooting the heaviest whitetail buck on record within the state of Maine. In fact, Hinckley's buck places second in all of North America, only to a Minnesota buck shot in 1926 by Carl Lenandor. Carl's buck topped the scales at 402 pounds dressed.

I remember reading about it 20yrs ago in aoutdoor lifemag about hinkley.I thought it stated not field dressed it topped 500+lbs.

Forrest Brown, the giant deer pulled the scales to a whopping 355 pounds. It was calculated that Hinckley's buck had an approximate live weight of 488 pounds. Several measurements were then taken which included: neck girth - 28 inches, body girth behind forelegs - 47 inches, greatest girth - 56 inches, and a total length from antler tip to rear hoof of 9 1/2 feet.

This was the story I read way back. But they had a picture of him with the deer hanging beside him.
My bad close to 500. But still that is one big deer with the antler tohoof
9 1/2 ft.
