Awesome Whitetail Buck’s Monster Rack Is Second Best Of All-Time By A Hunter!

When the news broke more than a month ago about this stupendous whitetail deer from Indiana, it sent shock waves through the hunting world about the possibility of a record-shattering rack.

Turns out, the story is true. Tim Beck’s buck is among the best of all-time.

The Indiana hunter had his gigantic rack officially scored by Boone and Crockett, which certified it with a final score of 305 7/8. It is the second-largest deer killed by a hunter and the antlers are only the fifth set ever known to break 300 inches.

The two best non-typical racks scored 333 7/8 — the famed “Hole in the Horn” buck from Ohio — and 328 2/8 inches, also from Ohio.  Those were found by hunters and later scored. The No. 3 non-typical B&C buck, the Lovstuen Buck of Iowa, scored 307 5/8.

It’s a remarkable time for whitetail deer hunters and giant bucks. With more management strategies being put into place, along with hunters being more tuned into seeking big bucks, the bonanza of giants surely will continue.

    Nate,

    Thanks for taking the time to write. We appreciate hearing from you. You make some points that we will certainly take to heart, and strive to do better on this site.

Not a perfect world, but we will continue working to ensure the quality of the experience is the same as the one our print readers have enjoyed for the past 36 years.

    Again, thanks for your support and concerns.

    My best,

    First off, what a deer. Simply…wow.

    Second, who do you get to write these things? “The famed Hole in the Horn buck from Missouri”? Really? It seems like an innocent enough mistake, but the online articles that I have seen on this site consistently have an ignorant air and false facts, and the big buck galleries I’ve viewed look more like someone copy and pasted the top ten Google Search results without so much as a second glance at the images or facts.

    The only reason I rant is because I grew up with such respect for this publication and it pains me to see such shoddines in the website. Although it has been years since I’ve received my last magazine in the mail, I was considering subscribing again, but choose not to because I am afraid these qualities might transfer to print.

    In making these comments it is simply my goal to bring attention to the fact that people notice these small things, and that perhaps a remedy should be found so that a brighter light can be cast on an otherwise excellent publication.

    With respect,
    Nate
