Opinion's On King Buck.

While most of us probably aren't official scorer's, most of us have a pretty good idea of how to score a buck and what counts as a typical or non-typical point. I am curious of the opinion's on The King Buck taken in Wisconsin. I myself believe the G-3's are typical points. They definitely originate from the main beam and they are coming off the top of the main beam. It definitely looks like the G-2 and the G-3 are just growing close together and are sharing a base. I think it is a typical 6x6. But, who am I? Let's hear some other opinions.

Yeah, it's an interesting story.  I posted a link to it last month.  Interesting article.

I personally think it should be a typical point.  what is more concerning though is that it seems to be one man taking advantage of a rule int he books to keep this beautiful deer from being scored by a panel of judges.

It says only top 10 entries can be rescored by a panel, and this does not fit into that category.  Well, "DUH!!!". Of course it does not fit in there, because this one guy measured it, behind closed doors, and came up with his own decision.

The unfortunate thing is the money that is probably flying around in this matter.  Fron the current world record holder, to the King guy, and so-on, everyone has an interest in the story.

Either way, it's a gorgeous deer, and the hunter should be very proud!

Yeah, I really wonder the politics behind this one. It's a darn shame we can't keep the politics in government. It's bad enough in government and now we have them on scoring deer heads.
