The Boone and Crockett Club issued an official statement on the Johnny King Buck controversy late Wednesday, stating that it will not panel-score the potential World Record typical whitetail.
In its official statement, B&C hinted that Deer & Deer Hunting contributor Duncan Dobie provided misinformation in his article. D&DH stands by Dobie’s reporting and attributions. Dobie, who is the former editor of North American Whitetail Magazine and has more than 25 years of professional journalism experience, has followed the King Buck story for more than two years. In doing so, he conducted hours of interviews and follow-up interviews with countless individuals on both sides of this issue, including many B&C and Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club representatives.
