Keith Balfourd, MT 2005
An All-Time Giant, Close to Home
January 17, 2006

Usually here at B&C, we get to watch as many people we have never met harvest some of the finest animals in North America. This is not the case this time, as something incredible has happened to one of our own.

B&C Marketing Director Keith Balfourd was fortunate enough to harvest the buck of many lifetimes recently in B&C's home state of Montana. Keith was on a do-it-yourself public land hunt in a good area, and his patience in passing on many good caliber bucks paid off in spades.

This monstrous 5x7 Montana typical was officially scored at the B&C Headquarters in Missoula by official measurer Ryan Hatfield at 203-5/8. That makes it the top hunter-taken typical mule deer in Montana history, and #2 overall in Montana. The new state record, a picked up head, was also entered just recently, at 207-7/8. Particularly impressive on Keith's buck are the G-3's and G-4's, which all are 14-6/8" or longer in length.

Congratulations to Keith for tons of legwork and a job well-done. We are all currently just a little envious of his success. Look for the story on this great buck in the Spring 2006 issue of Boone & Crockett Club's Fair Chase magazine.
