I have an original, signed copy of the 1974 bookcalled How To Bag The Biggest Buck Of Your Life by Larry Benoit with Peter Miller. It's still in nice shape and was just curious what it might be worth?

GregH, at leastyou know of it. It's a neat book and I've heard there aren't many copies to be had.

I was ten years old when that book came out and I don't know how many times I read it cover to cover. Growing up in Vermont, these guys were legends to us. When I was in my twenties, I lived in the next town over from them and we would drive by and see the huge bucks hanging from Larry's porchafter the season was over.Very impressive. Last weekend I attended a seminar put on by the Benoit Brothershere in NH and picked up their second book "Benoit Bucks". It is signed by all three of them and in it, the author states that your book is worth some money now. I have no idea how much, but sure would like to know.

Good luck with it and if you find out how much it's worth, you got to tell us.

I remember someone a year ago on HNI talking about getting a copy from ebay and I think he said he paid around 250.
