I bagged a Large Buck opening day. Live weight 286 lbs. Field Dressed 248 Lbs. Was wondering if there were any Weights historically?

Welcome to BGH! Nice buck you got there. It appears that the heaviest buck on record was 500 lbs. from MN. What state did you shoot yours in? Not uncommon for big bucks around here to hit the 300 + lb. mark. Lot of crops to help that.

You would be right Red.... Just goes to show the complainers that the deer programs are working VERY WELL.... Reduced numbers are creating bigger and healthier deer... PROOF is in the pudding as they say... NICE BUCK!!! Thumbs up

That's a really nice buck. I grew up in southwestern NY in Cattaraugus County in the 70's and there were some big deer around, but not many. Most got shot before they grew too old.
