Big Deer Contests???

11 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

I see big deer contests around the state and am in a contest myself. The ussual winners for the contest I'm in are 160 for a doe and 250 for a buck i would say........... Biggest buck I've ever saw weighed 273 and I actually shot a doe that I couldn't belive this year - 181 lbs!

Just wonderring what others have seen for deer weights? And hoping I can hold onto the biggest doe spot!

Thanks, ya that's kinda what I was thinking. I'll try and post some pics within the next week or so....... We took some pics with her hanging next to a 215 lb buck a guy shot in our group and the length is about the same, just a little less stocky.

We shot a doe 2 years back down in houston, MN and the deer weight just over 200 dressed. It was a horse. It actually looked like a buck without antlers. The thing had almost no teeth and was grey all over. We had actually seen the deer a few times, but the guy couldn't pass her up any longer. We were having trouble getting her out with 3 guys and a 4 wheeler. I can honestly tell you that I will never see a doe that big the rest of my life.

Wow, those are some enormous does. I shot what I thought was a really big one a few years ago and had it weighed. It was 155.

Here's the 181 pound doe I shot on opener. She wasn't a dry doe though like the one the guy from Houston shot though.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
