No Maine photo album would be complete without the Ronnie Cox Buck shot at the edge of the thousand acre bog............

Those are some real impressive bucks, woodseye. It seems like each year a new mammoth or two gets added. I love the nontypical characteristics that most of the real huge Maine bucks get. Even the Cox buck has some knotting a knurling that have non-typical qualities. Where is the Cox buck now? DL

I'm not sure of this but I think hes in the Bass Pro Shop collection. Hes changed hands several times and I would have to talk to Phil up on the ridge to be sure who has him now. We were hunting up at the camp when he was shot and they brought him down to Freds to sell the horns.Killed right on the edge of the thousand acre bog in Crystal.I like the wide brow tine spacing that you see on some of these Maine bucks and is very pronounsed on the Cox buck.

i am just at awww of those pics. i would not know what i would do if i saw any one of those bucks in the woods. ( besides shooting it ) i think i would have a heart attack or something seeing a buck that big walk by my stand.

maybe the heart attack would be from dragging that pig out of the woods http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-hair-raisin-blue.gif

Hey Quilly,read the Maine deer press release thats just what happened to one hunter.Remember when you hunt in Maine you always have the chance to see a huge buck like these,there are several like this shot every year.

i did track a buck in my honey hole the first week. he is still in there and no one in the past 4 years i have ever seen in this swamp. i went up to my neck 2 years ago and almost lost my old rem 7600 in 308win.

i have a picture somewhere of the hoof print on this beast. from the tip of the hooves to the end of the dew claws were exactly TWO 30-06sprg shells put back to back !!!!

never seen a buck track that big before. he has been shot at before but never crosses the logging road. i saw him last year but was not able to shoot him. he looked like atleast a 18 point buck. ( it might of been another buck ) http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-hair-raisin-blue.gif
also a nice 10 pointer dressed out at #240lbs. was taken last friday on pleasant mountain.

Some real nice pics.
Too bad the Silver Ridge buck can&#39;t be scored. I used to have a pic of him on the back of a truck with Mr. G , taken the day he was killed. Got it from a friend whose Grandfather traded guns with him.
Who owns the rack now, and when was it put together and mounted?

Roadkill,Fred has had it back for quite a few years now.Tad Proudlove mounted it up about 6-7 years ago.Theres been an article in NA Whitetail and its in the new Legendary Whitetails Book I believe.A great head and probably in the top 10 or so of all time from up here.

Thought i&#39;d bring these two pic threads to the top for any new guys to check out.Enjoy

Thanks woods for sharing. Those are truly some very awesome animals. Sounds like most of them were taken in Northern and Central Maine. Seems like that is where a great number of BC are taken is that part of maine. There are some big deer taken around these parts(midcoast) but not very many. Scouting to try to locate them is the hardest part.

http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-wow-eyes-yellow.gif Now those are some real brutes!!

So that&#39;s the Silver Ridge buck huh? What a spread on that buck, anyone know the measurements? Also, what is the reason it can&#39;t be officially scored? *EDIT* Read about it in the other thread, what a shame it can&#39;t have it&#39;s rightful place in the record books.......still a world-class trophy nonetheless!

I am very familiar with the Marquis buck. A few years before it was shot, I saw either him or a similar looking relative of his while hunting the area where Marquis got him. I nicknamed him "Clubhorn". Also had the privelege of seeing the deer at the tagging station and held those massive antlers in my hands! The mass is incredible.

Maybe someday I&#39;ll get a chance at a trophy such as these. Heck, maybe this season will be my lucky chance http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-biggrin-aqua.gif
