In your opinion what is the best big buck county in NJ?
Seems like that kind of crap happens too much. There are always a bunch of knuckleheads lining up to spread garbage about a big buck if they didn't kill it. Happened to a couple of friends of mine. One guy killed a near 160 inch buck in bow season and was hounded by idiots who accused him of shooting it with a pistol. After all the investigations cleared him, he decided to keep his future big bucks to himself, and a few friends. The guy killed at least on more buck bigger than that one since then, a 170+ NET typical that dressed 214 pounds, but never registered it.NJ bowhntr,that buck your talking about was shot in Basking Ridge by Mr Behre.There is a great story behind it though.To make it short a well known poacher was caught trying to shoot it before the season.Word has it that after Mr.Behre shot it the first day of the season the poacher in turn called on Mr Behre.F&G ended up confiscating the rack and hide for testing.After not being able to prove anything.F&G returned the rack and hide.Mr Behre was so upset by F&G handling of the case that he refused to enter it into the state record book.
