    Quote:Agreed. I've hunted every season every year since I turned 12. My family has always had wild turkey for Thanksgiving. This year, I have way too much going on with this house and my inlaws to find the time to get out... so I made sure I reserved my bird from a breeder and I'm very happy with Jakers. By the way, we've NEVER shot a wild bird over 20lbs, so where was your son hunting...? Share the secret... [​IMG]

    And Charlie, let me go dig out my photo album. I'll show you the buck I shot a few years ago... 150 yards, free standing, smoking a cigarette and singing. No, I wasn't drunk either [​IMG]

    [​IMG] No worries ticks, the buck itself wasn't huge. Just a big rack. He weighed about 95-100lbs dressed. My grandfather's brought back massive bucks from Saskatchewan that weighed almost 160lbs dressed.

    I just supplied an answer, I didn't mean to sound snippy. No need to apologize.

    My neighbor this year got a 211 18-pointer with an 18 inch spread. Not bad for a VT deer.

    Shellie, that was one nice buck there you took [​IMG] ..You got me beat on the antler size.., ive only ever taken small 4-6-8 pointers(largest spread for me around 15-16" inside) shot a buck almost every in archery from age 12, that would come down to about 25 buck so far in my life time... he's got some nice head gear.. what kind of spread did he have.. Did you mount him by chance??
