Meadville Pa big buck contest 2012

Thought I would share the link as someone always asks for it. A lot of bigger bucks than last year for sure. And some of the youth are getting real slammers. I dont care for the automatic slideshow, but it is what it is. They say the page will be updated the next 2 Saturdays. Enjoy.

Re: Meadville Pa big buck contest 2012

I agree, while they are all nice bucks the real big ones haven't shown up there yet. I live relatively close to the dealership and over the years have seen some unreal bucks brought in but nothing really jaw dropping yet. Bu I am sure there will be a couple brought in by the end of the season.

Re: Meadville Pa big buck contest 2012

I don't know what is impressive or not but the one 12 pt is going to to net 168.5 typical score!! That puts it at 40th all time in the state. Of course that is what was reported in the Meadville Tribune. I wasn't up there but I know pics can be decievingly good or bad.

Re: Meadville Pa big buck contest 2012

I said they were bigger than last year. Last year was dismal. No snow, very nice bucks that I remember. Here is a pic of that 168" crawford county buck. Sorry it is so small. Said to be the new record for the county.

I believe the buck pictured scored 165 1/4" at a local contest.

It's not luck if success is consistent.

Re: Meadville Pa big buck contest 2012

Yea I'm not too sure how you can't be impressed with any of those bucks. First off, kids shot the majority of them. Second, the last buck is HUGE!

Is it based on B&C scoring?

Had to edit/remove a few posts. The tagging laws are know by all, no need to jab each other about them.

Re: Meadville Pa big buck contest 2012

for those slamming the deer remember that most do not or would not post a pick of their deer esp big ones. maybe if pa changed the tresspassing laws to favor the land owner you would see how special the meadville area is. i know a few pictured and it surprises me because now they will probably have to worry about tresspassers next season
