they look more like sisters (LOL)

Wow those are huge deer. look at the size of the head on the one on the left. I am sure it has to do with lighting but the one on the left looks like he has a cinder block for a head....If they are brothers, ya gotta hope that family tree keeps looking like a telephone pole

IOWA - where there are no guns during the rut and trophy class deer are not a once in a lifetime event.....wish MN would catch on.

Dang nice bucks.

Those are big deer, really nice deer in fact, but 200"??? Boy I really don't know about that. Were they both officially scored? Its hard to tell from one pic but 200" is out of this world big and I just don't know that these two make it. I've seen lots of deer that are way overestimated scorewise by guys.

Don't get me wrong, these are awesome deer, I just wonder about the actual size...

I don't know much about scoring or where/when/if they were officially scored. I am told the buck on the right net scored just under 200 and the one on the left netted just over the mark.

Here is a brief mention on them in the field and stream online blog.

This is a link to the H.S. website photo gallery featuring the buck on the left.

Here is a link to Realtree video blog mentioning a hunt by Steve's place.

http://www.realtree.com/videoblog/2007_11_01_archive.html

I believe one or maybe both deer are featured on the H.S. video series but I am unsure. I know Steve filmed Philip Vanderpool(sp?) killing a 199" buck on Steve's land that is on the video cover.

My brother Errol killed a deer that officially net scored in the mid 140's and they are very small in comparison, so it is easy for me to believe Steve's are right up there score wise. This is a photo of my brothers buck.

Steve "the snowman" Snow - they're legit. Pretty easy to see by looking at the racks. We're talking gross non-typical scores too btw. I know of at least 1 more 200" taken from the same area last fall... talk about good genetics.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
