Big Al took this
magnificent buck in Wisconsin during the 1998 gun season.
There are not many of this caliber bucks in North America
but every once in a while it all comes together for the
hunter. Al will certainly remember the day he took this
buck for a long, long time.
Ike rainey of Florida took this
incredible buck from the same stand that I later took a
buck from. However, my buck was considerably smaller.
I have never met Ike but we have talked on the phone
several times to compare notes and we hunted out of the
same Saskatchewan camp for several years.
Ike is a consumate trophy whitetail hunter. I have heard
that he has taken another (bigger) Booner since taking
this one, and he has several other bucks of this caliber.
Earl Stong of Pottstown PA. holds
racks taken by four of five hunters in just three days
hunting at our Saskatchewan camp.
We usually have at least 85% kill on good bucks, and some
years our group manages 100%. Most years will see several
bucks that gross score above 170.
I am not always able to follow-up on which bucks net
Boone & Crockett, so I am using only
"gross" scores here.
