Mother Nature at her finest ... even though, she can be a freak at times.

These stories are as tall as the Monsters are big.

One can only imagine the heart pounding,blood thumpin', adrenaline shootin' high, that a man gets when he sees one of these beauty's in the wild outdoors!

The sad part about this showing of amazing bucks is that there isn't any shown from this decade. That shows how many trophy's there have yet to be harvested.

i doubt we find any trophies as such as these days because the average green-horn hunter is going to kill the first buck he sees. The deer never get to live long enough to allow such growth now. I have let smaller game pass and 5 minutes later some idiot kills him, and that hunting my own property. No way to keep the un-wanted or poachers off your land unless you got dogs that are mean and lean or either you hunt 24/7 and patrol your property.

There are plenty of big bucks like these taken every year, but those are the ones that are paid for and killed behind a tall fence. Thankfully Boone and Crockett and Pope and Young do not allow such unethically killed animals to be entered into their records. Money can't buy everything.

What I enjoy the most about these tall tales and big racks is the history of hunting in general, and how things have changed since then... Take a look at the pictures: the old CARS, the simple clothes, the recurve bows and open sight rifles.
It was a simpler time when sportsmen were, obviously, amply successful without expensive optics, high dollar campers, cammie-jammies and ATV's. I would like to see more of the purist attitude among sportsmen and leave much of the (unnecesary) "technology" aside and enjoy the sport in a simpler frame of mind, leaving a great deal of the commercialism behind.

At the same time you also have to understand that not all average green-horns, heck not even all "master hunters", are after the monster bucks, but only after the deer for food purposes. So they tend to go after the deer that would have the best quality of meat. Although, illegally hunting on someone elses property is completely rude.

How could you leave out the world record Missouri Monarch, found dead in St Louis County in 1981? After all, it is the biggest buck ever!

There seemed to have been a abundant amount of trophy deer, fish, and other big game in the early 19th century due to not much hunting pressure.

that, buddyboy is the current world record typical whitetail. Heard its has a bullet lodged in a main beam. the lead must have been flying wild.
Used to be big whitetails in my hunting area but an outfitter/poacher tresspasses all over the two hills county and has killed most of them. not sure how you can still guied with several convictions. I did see a nice WT and Muly last weekend. cant wait for hunting season. good luck to all.

personally i think only bow records should be allowed inn the record books beacuse using a gun you can shoot deer and 250 to 300 yards and with a bow you shoot up to 40 yards thats up close and personal

I notice that Jack O'Connor left out the circumference of the main beam on his scoring sheet for that lion-killed Arizona Whitetail. Also, the sheet has no space for a total score. But that was before 1950 when the current scoring system was adopted. Still, records were made to be broken, and the best may be yet to come.
