Vermont Record Buck is 300 Pounds Dressed
While on the subject of trophies, the VT state deer hunting record has officially declared the Verge buck the state record at 300 pounds dressed. The deer was harvested in 1958 and had become legendary in VT. I’m not quite sure why it took so long to be entered into the record books, but there is plenty of supporting documentation. Biologist at the time suspect the deer was only two years old. Care to take a guess at the caliber rifle used to harvest the deer? No, it wasn’t a .300 Winchester Magnum, like B&C members prefer. The rifle caliber that took down the VT record was a .243. Hunter should remember that shot placement plays more of factor than big noise and recoil.
