A DEER & DEER HUNTING EXCLUSIVE!
On Nov. 18, 2006, avid whitetail hunter Johnny King of Mt. Horeb, Wis., shot a massive 12-point buck the likes of which were almost unparalleled in the annals of deer and deer hunting. As a straight 6-by-6 typical with no additional abnormal points, the great rack grossed more than 220 inches, a milestone few typical whitetail racks in history have attained. Some even said it would be the next world record buck.
Yet, some 4½ years later, the rack remains in relative obscurity. In a time where antler scores and giant racks are the Holy Grail to most avid whitetail fanatics, how could this happen to what could be the next world record buck? How could Wisconsin, rich in whitetail history and proud producer of the former world-record James Jordan Buck, let a deer like this slip through the cracks?
The answer is perplexing and, in a way, maddening. For King, life will never be the same. Here, in a Deer & Deer Hunting exclusive, is his untold story.
Inside you’ll find …
- Exclusive video interviews with Johnny King recounting his fateful hunt.
- In-depth explanation behind the intimidation tactics used on B&C scorers.
- Reaction from DDH experts on why this incredible buck deserves a second look.
