TROPHY WATCH - ARCHIVE - JUNE 2005



Cathy Keene, Wyoming 2004
Wyoming Monster
June 12, 2005

First reports on this all-time megabuck are that it was taken by Cathy Keene of Kinnear in Owl Creek on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. Most of the rumors on this buck are that it will score somewhere in the 289 B&C range and is over 40 inches wide. If entered and accepted into B&C's Awards Program, it could stand as one of the largest mule deer ever taken by a woman. It is also likely one of the largest mule deer taken anywhere in the last twenty years.

UPDATE: Catherine E. Keene's non-typical mule deer has been accepted at 285-3/8 B&C. It now takes its place as the new #3 all-time for Wyoming.

 

Scott Dexter, IL 2004
Illinois Does It Again
June 7, 2005

This buck has been making some big waves of late. First reports are that it was taken by Scott Dexter north of Macomb, Illinois. It has been UNOFFICIALLY green scored at between 288-293 using the Boone and Crockett scoring system. If that holds, it could rank as high as the 6th largest non-typical whitetail ever taken, and a possible new #2 in Illinois. What an incredible buck! Congratulations, Scott!

UPDATE: Scott Dexter's gigantic whitetail was accepted on April 1, 2005 at 294 B&C. This deer will obviously be invited to the B&C Judges Panel in 2007, but assuming for now that that score stands, Scott's deer will become the sixth-largest deer ever recorded by Boone & Crockett Club.

 

Brad Jerman, OH 2004
New Ohio Record
June 5, 2005

B&C associate Brad Jerman made some big news in the midwest and across the country when he bagged this giant buck. He had seen it the night before, and made the shot of his life the next morning with his crossbow.
The drying period just ended, and the preliminary official score of this huge buck is 201-1/8 B&C. If accepted by B&C at that score after review, it would become the new Ohio state record and would stand at #11 all-time for typical whitetail.
Brad writes, "I am very blessed to have had an opportunity on such a magnificent animal. I was glad to have a very ethical kill also. It ran only 25 yards after the shot, and expired within ten seconds."
Read more about this awesome trophy in the spring issue of Fair Chase, due out in February.

UPDATE: Brad Jerman's trophy was accepted on February 2, 2005 at 201-1/8. It is now the 11th-largest typical whitetail ever recorded by B&C.

 

Washington, 2004
Big Washington Moose
June 1, 2005

We are currently waiting for more information on this great Wyoming moose. It is believed to come from Washington, and looks as though it could challenge the state record.
The current state record for Washington is 175-3/8. It was found dead, and is currently owned by the B&C National Collection.

UPDATE: Jeff McKeen was the lucky hunter on this great Shiras moose. Final score is 168-4/8. It was believed to be the largest hunter-taken moose in Washington history, until we recently received an entry from Leroy Cooper. Leroy's 2004 trophy, a 176-2/8 monster, now takes over the top spot for any moose ever recorded in Washington.
