Tim Beck Buck – 2nd Largest Whitetail Ever Taken!

2nd Largest Whitetail Deer Ever Taken by Hunter

MISSOULA, Mont. (Feb. 28, 2013) – Tim Beck, a hunter from Indiana, has officially taken the second-largest whitetail deer ever taken by a hunter, according to Boone and Crockett, which compiles such records for conservation, management and historical purposes.

The buck’s antlers are the largest non-typical recorded in more than a decade and only the fifth ever to break the 300-inch mark, with a final score of 305-7/8.

The buck now stands as the fourth largest non-typical whitetail deer on record. The current World’s Record for non-typical whitetails (333-7/8 inches from Missouri) as well as the No. 2 buck (328-2/8 inches from Ohio) were not hunter-taken trophies. Both were found dead and entered into the records as “pickups.” The third-largest buck in the category was taken by a hunter in Iowa and scores 307-5/8.

The Beck Buck is a shockingly big whitetail, sporting a 222-4/8” typical frame and 93-7/8” of abnormal points. It also serves as further proof that we’re living the good old days of whitetail hunting right now; 5 of the Top 10 nontypicals in the B&C books have been shot since the year 2000, and three of those five monster whitetails score over 300” (the Lovstuen buck scored 307-5/8”; the Beck buck is 305-7/8”; and right behind them is Jerry Bryant’s Illinois giant at 304-3/8”).
