Been reading a little about the Hanson Buck and 2 things really jumped at me.
1. The world record buck was only around 3.5 years old. Could you imagine if that deer would have reached its full potential. Not saying he should have past it up just saying he still had plenty of growing to do and I couldn't imagine what he would have been in 2 more years
2. According to the story several land owners knew where the Hanson buck was located and decided to meet up for a deer drive. When they jumped this deer it was missed by one land owner (must say that had to suck) and proceeded towards Hanson. When Hanson seen the deer @ 100 yards he shot hitting the deer in the back.....(interesting part) and the bullet skipped upward and hit the deers right main beam. All I can say he was one lucky hunter. For one the other guy missed and two that he didn't shoot the right main beam into
Just some interesting facts to share
