Here is a new photo of the reported 309” Indiana monster that could turn out to be the biggest non-typical (NT) whitetail buck ever killed by a hunter. People in the know were telling me that the field photo I posted last week did not do this giant justice, and they were right. After seeing that first photo, some of you commented that this did not look like a 300” rack. What do you think now?
Bits and pieces of info are coming out. The buck was killed w/shotgun on Nov. 17, 2012 in Huntington Co. First unofficial reports: gross score 319, net 309 7/8; 37 scorable points; 79” of NT points; 30/29” beams; 13” brows; 15/16” G-2s. I hear this deer will be called the "Crab Buck."
Boone and Crockett has received the score sheet on this rack from an official measurer, and Club officials are reviewing more pictures and a video of the scoring process. The rack will still have to be panel-scored by a team of B&C official measurers, a process that can get tricky with a NT rack. Scorers are known to disagree as to what points are scorable, which are not, etc.
Stay tuned, but what a rack! comment
