OH vs PA deer

  1. My buddie hunts Pa,Oh and I hunt Oh and and we can't seem to agree who has the biggest deer Ohio or PA and we are talking body not rack.

    It is almost universally accepted as fact that Ohio has much larger bodied deer than W. Va or Penn.

  3. i say ohio only because of the stories i've heard about PA deer being the size of my Golden Retriever!!
  4. I don't even hunt them and I know that Ohio's deer are some of the best in the country, let alone PA.

    Go have your buddy drug tested or have his eyes checked. Ohio has bigger deer hands down.
  6. ...I am a Pa. hunter have been for 50 years...No doubt in my mind Ohio has the biggest deer Body size and Antler size...Out here in Ohio there is always standing corn in the winter for them...back home in Pa. the farmers has everything picked before deer season comes in...As for the antler size up untill recently when they started regulating the points a deer had to have ...if it had a rack from spike up it got shot at...Deer need nutrition for there bodies...ENOUGH SAID ...OHIO...C.L.

  8. I'm sure that there are big deer in pa. They have farm land and corn. but I'm sure that Oh. has more. The avg. size weight has got to go to Oh. hands down!

  10. Overall, Ohio has very large deer but Extreem Western Penna can also produce some real bruisers.

    i'd say that on average ohio has the bigger deer.i've never hunted in pennsylvania but have taken deer in wva., and the most important difference to me is the taste.these corn fed deer here in ohio have a better taste than what i've had from wva.
  12. ...As shortdrift say's there may be some bruisers in Pa. ..you don't see them like you do out here in Ohio..Hunted Pa. for a long time ..when a big buck is killed it makes the newspapers..over the years havn't seen reports of too many...Love Pa. but Ohio still has the bigger deer......C.L...:!
