I think it's really a shame that people get so caught up about numbers and records when it comes to hunting. I guess I was just brought up in the hunting culture under a different light. The only competition I've ever felt was between myself and the animal I was pursuing.
King Buck Panel Scoring
September 6, 2012 – Missoula, MT – With the requested additional information and materials having been provided to the Boone and Crockett Club’s Records Department the decision was made on August 20th to convene a judge’s panel to score Johnny King’s whitetail deer taken in Wisconsin in 2006.
Two teams of two B&C official measurers will independently measure the deer and
then collaborate on their findings to determine the deer’s final score before the end of September.
The Club’s Records Chairman, Eldon Buckner will select four experienced judges, with no more than two judges being members of the Club’s Records Committee. All panel members selected will be senior official measurers with no prior personal experience with this particular trophy.
The Boone and Crockett Club’s Board of Directors has not instructed the judge’s panel to score the King Buck as a typical or a non-typical. It is the responsibility of the panel to independently determine the correct way to score a particular trophy using the Club’s scoring system.
The panel’s findings will be the deer’s final score.
The Boone and Crockett Club will not comment prior to the panel and will issue a formal statement once the panel has convened and made its determination in accordance with the Club’s standard practices.
