Buck Oddities: Check Out This Giant Non-Typical

Buck_oddI wanted everyone to take a look at this monster non-typical buck that was taken during the Kentucky gun season last November. This buck has a very unique rack with all of the neat kicker points and trash hanging off its main beams. You can bet your bottom dollar that I would let this buck ride in the back of my truck. In recent years, the Bluegrass State has been receiving a lot of attention for producing some impressive deer and this massive bruiser is picture proof that Kentucky’s conservative one buck per season management practices are paying off. I spoke with David Yancey of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources Agency and he said he thinks this giant was taken from Leslie County by a hunter named John Morgan.

According to Yancey, this big non-typical buck scored 214 7/8, making it an unbelievable whitetail in any state. Can you imagine having a top-heavy buck like this walking toward your stand at about daylight? If a set of headgear like this doesn’t get your adrenalin pumping then you might want to check your pulse, because you’re probably dead! I am going to try to find out more about this gargantuan buck and how the hunt unfolded. Keep checking the BBZ over the next couple of weeks and I will keep all of you posted. Seeing a buck like this makes me wish I could skip summer and go straight to fall!
