Kentucky Buck Reshuffles Longbow Records

At first glance, Joe Lacefield's buck might appear to sport identical foot-long drop tines on a 4x4 mainframe. That's exactly what Joe, a B&C measurer and wildlife biologist with the state of Kentucky, thought when he peered at the dying animal through his binoculars.

Actually, however, the deer's main beams droop downward, which is even more evident when the partially shredded velvet was removed. And even with the addition of a kicker off its left P2, it qualifies as a Typical, which makes it the runner-up to the world longbow record in “Buckmasters Whitetail Trophy Records."

How to Beat the No-stand Blues

A not-so-funny thing happened to Mike Flanigan of Conneaut, Ohio, on the way to his deer stand last Oct. 27. When he arrived at his tree, the stand wasn't there.

Understandably upset, he could've walked back to his truck to stew in his own juices for a few hours while his friend and son hunted.

Instead, he channeled his inner squirrel – or maybe his 10-year-old self – and found a tree he could climb.

Had he done the former, his bank account might've suffered only the cost of replacing the treestand. He wound up having to pay another few hundred dollars to commemorate the day he discovered the theft.

Possum-playing Buck Unravels Kentucky Hunter

Dennis Nickell and his friend, J.T. Rawlings, knew an enormous buck had been seen near the 160-acre farm they hunt in Fleming County, Ky., in 2013. A neighboring landowner had retrieved trail camera photographs of the animal when its impressive rack was still in velvet.

Despite spending many hours in a treestand with his bow in September and early October, the Flemingsburg hunter never glimpsed the buck from the photos. He was beginning to think it had vanished until a state trooper spotted it in a nearby bean field.

That sighting put the spring back into his step.

On opening Saturday of the modern gun season, not by accident the beginning of Dennis' annual vacation, he watched the sunrise from a stand overlooking a bench on a long ridge that runs through the tract he's hunted since 1990. The wind was gusting, and he spent much of that morning holding on for dear life.

Elusive Buck Lets Down His Guard

Chad McCoy was not surprised when a buck wearing at least 160 inches of antler activated his trail camera's shutter in October 2011. He'd just acquired the property in Ohio, and the photograph merely confirmed his hunch that the piece of ground held potential.

He saw the same buck trailing a doe a month later, but that was the first and last time he eyeballed it that year. Even so, he nicknamed it King.

Chad and his brother, Lear, retrieved several nighttime photographs of King in 2012, but neither saw him on the hoof. The images revealed that he'd grown considerably.
