BuckTracker: A Classic Maine Monster

Long-time contributing editor and whitetail expert Scott Bestul has his finger on the pulse of the deer hunting world, and he’s always one of the first to know when someone bags a monster. He’ll be keeping us updated regularly, so keep an eye on this page.

Dave: I've dreamed of dragging a big buck from the Maine woods since I was a kid, and deer like this are what fuels my fire. Pennsylvanian Bob Hegedy shot this gorgeous 8-point from about 20 steps this month. Then he got his buddies to help him drag it out...no small feat with a steer-sized whitetail that dressed out at 233 pounds!

Well you nameless writer who has no balls it's a real shame that people like you live on this earth. Don't you have an appointment to hug a tree or go to a P.E.T.A meeting? If I were you I would stay off these blogs.

SU

yeah im the guy with no balls...shooting something that has no chance to do anything back to you takes a real MAN to do...tree hugging is actually one of my hobbies..its pretty fun!

MPN

Get the hell out of our sites. You are nothing but a low life human. YOU ARE A DISGRACE.

Sincerely,
MPN

SU

Hey dumb ass SU,

You eat meat
Meat is on animals
The animal is killed to get meat
You eat the meat

We hunt the animals
We get the meat
We eat the meat

You are stupid.

And do you have no life but to come on these blogs and smack talk us hunters who can kick your ass?

MPN, White Pine,

Don't let that SU guy get under your skin. He is only having fun watching you guys get angry.

And by the way SU,
All animals die it's just a matter of when and how.

if you hunt for food thats fine...if you hunt for sport thats ridiculous...what if someone came and killed you and your family while you were eating or some shit like that...sounds like that you do..at least let the animal know that you are there instead of hiding like a coward..you couldn't beat me up because im sure your just some fat hick..oh man white pine has got your back, whats he gunna do cyber punch me?...yeah i do like animals because i respect them, and you should too

Su,
Okay you are really starting to piss me off. I hunt for the meat. I'm not a trophy hunter. I probably have more respect for the animals then you. I'm not a fat "hick". And I want to know what you're getting out of this. That is why are you even writing on these blogs? Just live your life and let us live ours.

Really pissed off,
MPN

A little support would be nice my fellow hunters.

Big Fat Hick

Hey SU I'm a big fat hick as you call us and I don't like your type at all. Just leave these blogs, get a life. I never comment on these blogs I just read um, but your filthy mouth changed that. All the meat you eat came from an animal that has been killed. We kill the animals to get the meat. Don't pick a fight against guys with guns!

SU,
I am a conservationist. Most people in my field hate hunting, but I don't. My job is to try and show the benefits hunting has on the ecosystem. Hunting is need to control wildlife populations. Mainly where natural predators are no longer existing. You can not dislike hunters when they're doing no harm to the ecosystem. They actually help the ecosystem.

Next, you say you hate people that kill animals. Well I guarantee you've killed an animal. Ever swat at a mosquito or step on an ant. Bet a deer hit your car and died. So you can't dislike hunters for taking an animals life when you have to.

Matt

MPN

Matt,
I'm glad to see that a conservationist finally agrees that hunt'n is good. Thanks. Good look trying to convince your buddies though.
