Buckle your seat belts, folks, the King Buck has landed in Montana for what could be a historic moment in deer hunting history tomorrow.
After six long years of waiting, the massive 6-by-6 from Grant County, Wis., will be panel-scored by the Boone and Crockett Club to see if it will unseat the Milo Hanson Buck as the new world record.
In case you missed it, this buck has been shrouded in controversy almost since the day Johnny King killed it while hunting with a bead-sighted .30-30. King, a construction worker from western Wisconsin, knew nothing about world records or scoring deer for that matter. He just knew it “was a good one.”
