Ever since King shot the buck with an iron-sighted .30-30 on a family-farm in Wisconsin, the rack and the way in which it was scored has been steeped in controversy. At the core of it all was how the buck should be classified. Is it a typical or non-typical? On most deer, this is a no-brainer, and from afar, the King Buck looks like a typical. But a closer look shows one point on the right side that, according to Boone and Crockett's Director of Big Game Records, Jack Reneau, is in fact a non-typical point. If the rack was judged as a typical, it would have likely squeaked by Hanson's world record by an inch or less. But today, four B&C measures affirmed Reneau's judgement after a special judges panel was called to make a final determination.
