May be the timing of the rut in relation to your season and/or depend on acorn crop and previous winter

Wow that's a big one for sure. Did you ever weigh her for an accurate weight?

Huge doe. The biggest I've heard of was one that dressed at 190 lbs. I saw it in a picture and the photo was like that--so large you could tell it was monstrous.

I did not weigh her Rob, thats just an estimate, from me and several other hunters? When we used to take them to DNR stations to register, i weighed lots of deer on the scale and the biggest 2 does off my property were around 185 & 190lb dressed mark.

I have killed two doe that were around the 200 mark and the one in the picture is definitely in that ball park.

My personal best doe was a 160 fully dressed on a state inspected scale. She was a tanker but nothing like that one gjersy. Throw a modest rack on her and she would be a trophy buck most anywhere. I wonder how old she was? Once my brother got a 130 pound Vt doe that was going downhill and was aged at 9 1/2 by a biologist.

Is there someone you can send teeth to in order to get deer aged? Does that cost money? Would be good to know in case I ever shoot an old looking one.

I still say the most underrated things in deer hunting is taking an old lead doe. We talk about cagey big bucks and all that, but a lead doe is inevitably one smart cookie.
