Benoit Family

My buddy from upstate NY does seasonal FedEx deliveries into Vermont. He delivered a package with the last name Benoit and asked the man at the door if he was one of the famous Benoit's. The guys answered, "Maybe I am, maybe not. Are you a hunter?" My friend answered yes, then got a tour of the house. My bud's best buck ever is 130's and wouldn't even make the guys wall. He was blown away by the size of buck. Racks and just their size. Necks and such. The guy, forget which one, said one of the buck field dressed at 280lbs!!!! All the deer were taken from public land. Obviously it's different there but still. He said the guy was really interesting and knew his stuff. Which is pretty obvious. I guess real nice people to invite the FedEx guy in and talk for half an hour. Totally changed how my buddy will hunt from now on.

Haha, probably Lanny. I got the same response from him when I met him at a general store in Maine.

I think that was who he said but wasn't sure.

Re: Benoit Family

I got a few of their books and usually chat with them at the Harrisburg sport show when theyre there. Love reading their stories and am amazed how far they drag some of those big bucks out.

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

I doubt it was Lanny. Lanny doesn't have heads on his wall in the house. He keeps his snowmobile racing trophies and his antlers elsewhere -- in the garage, in his shop, and in the travel trailer: The Benoit Brotherhood

Prolly Lane. Maybe Shane. All of them are good guys; I'm not surprised the FedEx guy got a tour.

Re: Benoit Family

You may be right but when I met Lanny he was a total....well I'd get kicked off here if I typed what I want to say.
