Wow top 20 in B&C entries in the last decade. That's pretty good right there!

im sure the vast majority of record class deer do come off private land but not all.
The posting problem has only gotten worse as the racks get bigger...
personally ive never thought much of a big buck being killed by a guy who hunts posted property. Those types of chest beaters probably would quit hunting if they solely had to rely on state ground.
you really have to respect the hunter who consistently kills good deer on state ground because thats a true skill.
This state would definately produce trophy class deer if we limited the amount of people hunting but WHY would we want to limit people hunting?
for the sake of a rack?
Best answer I have ever read on here, posted land and feed make large racks also. Which of these states farm feed deer?
