This is breaking news first reported by Deer & Deer Hunting. The much debated Johnny King Buck, looks to finally be getting it’s fair shot at claiming the mantle of World Record Typical. As you may remember from our past articles, this buck could potentially be the new world record – if it is scored as a typical. A single point is the subject of the controversy, if declared typical, then we have a new world record. It was announced that the Boone & Crockett Club will be convening a special panel to re-score the King buck in about three weeks.
“The panel-scoring session will allegedly take place at the Boone and Crockett Club’s national headquarters in Missoula, Mont. D&DH could not find out when this session will occur, but an inside source said it will most likely happen the third or fourth week of September. It is believed the panel will consist of six official B&C scorers, but no more than two of them will be from the B&C records committee. The panel will also apparently not include any of the men who weighed in on the buck’s rack in the past. This would include Glenn and Kevin Hisey of the Pope and Young Club, and former B&C executive secretary Jack Reneau.” – Deer & Deer Hunting
