Gary, I'm all for crucifying anyone who selfishly discredits another man's accomplishments, but remember, there are two sides to every story. That "one man" has scored countless B&C deer and knows what to look for. B&C has (and has had), a "No score shopping policy" that has been strictly enforced for decades. Believe me, the King head isn't the only head that has ever been the subject of controversy.
I also have shared up close pictures of the King head to local B&C scorers who have scored countless monster Illinois heads and they agree, it's a non typical point! If Jack knows it's a non typical point, why on earth is he obligated to have it panel scored when it doesn't meet the criteria for panel judgement? Do you want to know how many times a person wants to have their head re-scored because they're not happy with the score? It's countless! I wrote an article 3 years ago called "Don't shoot the messenger" revealing nasty details how disgruntled hunters who aren't happy with their scores, threaten B&C scorers! Oh believe me, it's true!
My final thought and question for you to ponder is this: Who will gain from this head becoming a world record? The hunter? Not really, because he doesn't own the head. It would be the owner! I wonder how much he paid for a head that could possibly become the next world record?
Before I reveal too much, I want to mention that I'm leading an investigation into this subject and may have some really interesting facts of interest. I'm not going to jump the gun but rather giving you the heads-up that there is more to come!
