Big Buck,
To answer your question, I would pass on a smaller buck early in the season in hopes of getting onto a bigger buck. Come the last week of the season I'm shooting the first legal deer I see. Just so happened that this year I saw my first buck on the last day of deer season. It was a 132lb spike with 12 inch spikes. About the size of two PA deer. Unlike down your way you can spend a lot of time in the North woods without seeing a deer.

Bigbuck,
You may want to head more towards Jackman if your looking for tracking snow. Especially since most likely you'll be planning your trip well ahead of time. I hunt around the Houlton area and the past few years we've had very little snow during deer season. At least snow that stays for more than a day or two. The last week is usually good for some snow, but its hard to plan on having snow to hunt on. Its sure a treat when the white stuff starts falling.
