Everett had a three-year history with this buck, which at this writing is the largest-grossing B&C nontypical overall for the 2017-2018 season. “I named the buck Goliath, and I hunted him very hard, but he was almost totally nocturnal,” Everett said. “I had only three encounters with the buck last fall. I really wanted to take him with my bow, and almost did; I had him at 60 yards, and then he got spooked by hogs. I finally got him on the opening day of rifle season. He’s the buck of a lifetime.” Everett’s huge whitetail has 28 scoreable points, a base circumference of 9 inches on one beam, and it now stands as the No. 2 all-time for Oklahoma nontypicals. —S.B.
