As hunters let’s face it: we like big bucks and we cannot lie. The form, the mass, the natural beauty—what’s not to like? Bigger is always better, and despite what people may tell you, size really does matter.
That said, non-typical whitetails may just be one of our favorite categories of monster trophy racks. Non-typicals have a propensity for oddity when it comes to antlers, and a knack for the absurd kind of growth that makes you gasp. There’s just something special about a deer that looks like there’s a giant tree root growing out of its head. Because of our obsession with horns, we teamed up with Boone and Crockett to bring you the 20 biggest non-typical whitetails of all time.
- In November 2006, Helgie Eymundson and his wife both took shots at the No. 20 biggest non-typical of all time, but neither were able to connect. Blame it on the cold if you want, but Eymundson couldn’t rest until he’d tracked down the monster buck. His persistence paid off, and in 2007 he killed the No. 20 buck on our list, scoring 274 B&C and killed in Cross Lake, Alberta.
