Big Buck Alert: 6 Giant Mystery Whitetails

By Scott Bestul

In looking through my email inbox and realize there are some truly monstrous bucks taken this fall that I’ve not yet posted. In most cases, I was simply waiting for more information that never came; others are hot off the electronic press, with—as usual—few details. At any rate, it’s time to put them up for your viewing pleasure. And hey, if you know anything about some of these jaw-droppers, feel free to chime in and say so.

1. Drop-Tine Wisconsin 8
This monster is said to have been taken in southern Wisconsin during that state’s recently completed firearms season. The left-side drop tine is reportedly 13 inches long, and the G-2 on that side 17 inches. The rumored net green scored 180, gross in the 200-inch neighborhood. This is certainly of the biggest 8’s I’ve ever seen.

2. Canada Chocolate-Horned Giant
So far, I have very little information on this fantastic, heavy-horned buck, other than Devin Moore of Washington, Oklahoma, reportedly shot it on a recent hunt in Canada. The rumor is that it could break into the B&C Top Ten. Incredible mass!

 

 

 

3. Jacob's Giant
I learned about this buck from a friend who sent me the photo with just three details—and then disappeared into the woods to hunt again. The buck had showed up on trail cams for several seasons but had eluded hunters until my friend’s, friend’s son—who I know is named Jacob—shot the buck last month. The gross score is 191-7/8.” From Minnesota or Wisconsin..

4. Saskatchewan Pickup
Boone & Crockett recognizes bucks that have been picked up (not harvested by a hunter, but found), which appears to be the case with this symmetrical giant from Saskatchewan (say that three times, fast). I have virtually zero info here, but it looks like this one could place high in the B&C book.

 

 

 

5. “230-Inch” Canada Typical?
Our friends to the north seem to be havin’ lots a fun, eh? I’ve got nothing on this monster at all…except a headline on an email that says “230” green. I showed this picture to a veteran B&C scorer who was skeptical about that figure, but admitted that it was “damn big.”

 

6. Indiana 8
Bringing the action back down south of the border, this gorgeous 8-point is said to have come from a herd-reduction hunt on or near Camp Atterbury, which is a military training facility in Edinburgh, Indiana.

Not that this helps much but I had #6 sent to my cellphone during rifle season a few weeks back here in Virginia saying that it came from Quantico.

At least the military theme sticks.....

Same here, looking at each of those points they all appear to look the same, strange that the other Canadian bucks brow tines look almost identical too.

What an incredible buck! I understand that you're going to share the story with one of our writers. Can't wait to hear the details.

Every one of these giants is a true trophy in my opinion. The bucks raised on the high fence farms that get special protein diets and get the grossly over developed antlers do NOT qualify, in my opinion.

Scott,

I am surprised you have not heard about the 10 pointer shot in Dane County, Wisconsin that gross scores 213. I have a pic of it, but don't know how to attach it.

Buck number 1 Was shot near Ridgeway Wi. During gun season. The Hunter's last name is Hermensen.. The talk is that it netted 190's Main frame 8 with 2 big drop tines.. Also was told it was sold to Cabelas For quite a bit of coin

I may be crazy but I think #2 and #5 are the same deer. I think the #5 pic is just "white washed" from the flash. What do you think?

Same deer, I'd say 231
