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.

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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
