Big Bucks

Back in the '80s and early '90s both my Dad and I were lucky enough to tag bucks large enough for us to qualify for the Maine Big Bucks Club which requires a buck to field dress at at least 200 pounds on a certified scale. My Dad's tipped the scales at 217 and mine was 225.

Also, I didn't notice any mention in any of those links of Maine's all-time heaviest buck which was taken in 1955 by a fella named Horace Hinkley and weighed 355 pounds on a certified scale (if memory serves me). Most sources say this is the 2nd largest whitetail buck ever recorded (dressed weight) with only a large Minnesota buck weighing in more, dressed (again, if my memory serves me).
