Cover by John Ford

The whitetail deer is the number one big game animal in North America. Hunting whitetails has become a big part of the economy throughout much of the United States, Mexico and Canada. Hunters spend thousands and thousands of dollars on guns, ammo, equipment, travel, food, leases, guide fees, taxidermy and the list goes on. The one big thing that continues to drive this burning desire to hunters is the dream of taking a massive trophy buck that sets high standards. This norm is often judged by the animal's Boone and Crockett score. The club was founded in 1887 by Theodore Roosevelt and George Bird Grinnell to keep records of Northern American Big Game Animals taken under 'Fair Chase' conditions. The Boone and Crockett Record Book is considered to be the most prestigious listing for trophy game animals. Mature whitetail bucks that reach this level of distinction are clearly in a league of their own!
