Massive Indiana Buck Confirmed as Second Largest Hunter-taken Non-typical Whitetail

index

The Indiana buck many had speculated to be the largest hunter-taken non-typical whitetail has been confirmed by the Boone and Crockett Club to rank as the number two largest non-typical ever harvested. It fell roughly two points short of usurping the first place spot held by a deer taken in Iowa in 2003.

According to the official score sheet released on Boone and Crockett’s Facebook wall, the behemoth buck was harvested in Huntington, Indiana by a Tim Beck. The rack was originally scored by an official measurer and later by a panel. It came in at 305-7/8 on the Boone and Crockett scale, while the Iowa record stands at 307-5/8.

Here are the results released by Boone and Crockett:

Beck Buck Comes in as #2 NT Hunter-taken Whitetail

The scoring procedure has been reviewed and after tine classification was verified this deer scores an amazing 305 7/8. Three tines originally scored as normal were deemed abnormal. On this particular head it took away 2/8 in deductions but when the H4 circumference measurements were taken with the correct classification the circumferences dropped a few inches resulting in a lower net score than the original posted 308 5/8.
