I live in Northern Michigan, and we do have some of the biggest whitetails. But most folks do over estimate them by a long ways. If you get a 150 pound deer that is really big in my book. You see guys get that 110 pound deer, and they have it at 175 or so. Most nice dressed out deer around here are about 130 or so if you want to be honest. Of course there are a few that are really big. I did see one on the scales at 242, and I would not believe it unless I seen it myself, and I did. It was a really old 8 pointer, and I do mean old he was all scared up and gray. But I aggree most hunters way over estimate the size by a long ways.
