This exclusive guest blog is from BIG DEER field reporter Dean Weimer: Trace Koble began hunting the Reduction Zone area strictly for waterfowl several years ago, but then the landowner switched from corn to soybeans and it was no longer good for ducks and geese. In 2017 Koble decided he’d put out a ground blind on this parcel, which is mostly open fields, to see what he would see. “But I never got serious about it until last year, when every sit in the blind I would see a plethora of deer filter out of a chunk of timber and feed on the other side of the field that I had permission on,” he says. This year, Trace decided to [...]

From USA Today: The youth deer hunting season in Kansas got off to a doozy of a start… Fourteen-year-old Paslie Werth…shot a once-in-a-lifetime deer on Sept. 6 — a 40-point, free-range whitetail buck tallying a gross green score of 282 6/8 inches — while rifle hunting on family property with her father, Kurt, in Kiowa County. When the rack is officially scored after the required 60-day drying period Paslie’s buck, which father Kurt believes could net in the high 260s, will be one of the top non-typical whitetails ever shot with a firearm in Kansas. The Sunflower State’s #1 gun buck is the 280 4/8” monster killed by Joseph Waters in Shawnee County in 1987. My friends at North American [...]

From the Big Deer archives: Mike: Just wanted to pass along a picture of a nice whitetail I killed in Ohio. I know you get a ton of pictures from hunters, but I wanted to send you this one as proof of what you preach. I shot this buck after a front passed through and it turned cold. I've heard you say on your show how you like to hunt after a cold front goes through. Well, I have to agree with you. This buck had not been seen in the earlier archery season or the prior 4 days of our gun season. When the front passed through and the temperature dropped he got up and made his mistake. Thanks [...]

Back around 2007, Muzzy Broadheads introduced the “200 Club Monster Buck Display.” This select club highlighted a group of bowhunters who had recently harvested a whitetail buck that scored more than 200 net inches with a Muzzy broadhead. According to Muzzy at the time, fewer than 2 percent of all Boone & Crockett and Pope & Young certified entries score over 200 inches, so the 200 Club is a very small but elite group of bowhunters. Here’s one of those stories. Marlon Hale glassed a buck in Carroll County, OH the summer before the 2005 deer season, but he wasn’t all that impressed. The animal was a long way off, and Marlon couldn’t tell how many points it had. He [...]

From North American Whitetail: “I didn’t get a picture of that deer until the beginning of November, but when I saw him, I knew he was a good one even if I didn’t really know how good,” (Troy Bryant) said. “I got my second set of pictures on Nov. 18. Once again, I knew he was a good deer from those photos, but I still didn’t know he was a 200-inch kind of deer.” On opening day of Oklahoma’s 2019 deer gun season, Troy saw and shot the beast. The Harper County buck had 11 points, 25-inch-plus beams and scored 197 7/8 inches gross 190 6/8 net, ranking it as one of the top-five all-time typicals in Oklahoma. Read the [...]
