The numbers prove it. Realtree fans north, south, east and west live and breathe deer hunting. These guys do, too. Hansen’s from Michigan, Brantley’s from Kentucky, and chances are their version of hunting whitetails is a lot like yours.
Johnny King Buck Video Implies Deer Should Be New World Record
In 2006, Wisconsin hunter Johnny King killed a huge 6X6 buck that could have challenged Milo Hanson's all-time typical record. But the buck has never been officially entered into the Boone and Crockett records because of controversy over how the buck should be scored. A point on the buck's right antler was determined by a Boone and Crockett official as being non-typical, dropping the buck's final net score from potentially eclipsing Milo Hanson's mark of 213 5/8 to somewhere in the mid-180s.
Deer and Deer Hunting magazine broke the story last fall and has been hot on its since. Today, they released a post on their site about a new video that shows long-time Wisconsin Bear and Buck scorer Marlin Laidlaw explaining exactly why the King buck should be scored as a typical.
This story just keeps getting stranger and stranger. Last week, according to D&DH, Boone and Crockett fired two of its longtime scorers because they spoke out against the Club's position on how the buck should be scored.
I'm not an official scorer for any organization. But I have to say that Laidlaw's explanation is very clear and convincing.
Looks like this story is far from over.
