Today is the final day of the Louisville Boat, RV and Sport Show. If you are one of those who are interested in deer, particularly trophy bucks, you should make plans to attend.
There is a big buck contest on display including a trophy that currently qualifies as the largest typical taken in the U.S. this year. The deer was harvested in Lewis County, KY, and scored 197 2/8.
Also on display is Mike Beatty’s world record non-typical archery buck taken in Ohio. Beatty is there promoting his DVD’s under the banner of Tag’D Out. His bruiser buck, taken in Ohio in 2000, has 39 scoreable points and an official Boone and Crockett score of 304 6/8. It is one of only three 300-inch buck ever taken by a hunter.
On tomorrows blog I will have an interview with Beatty detailing the hunt as well as more information about the Lewis County brute.
