World Record Velvet Typical 191″ 8-Point

Congratulations to Jeff Majors on shooting the newest placeholder in The Buckmaster’s Whitetail Trophy Records World Record Velvet Typical out of Hopkins County, Kentucky. Dale Weddle, an official scorer, measured the buck for a green gross score of 183 ½” for Pope & Young. The velvet 8-point has three kickers and a split G2, and if you include the spread, measured an INSANE 191” and was already 220 lbs field-dressed in the early season.   “He was way bigger than I thought. In trail camera pictures and on the hoof, I thought he was a 160-class buck. He’s my biggest buck I’ve ever killed,” said Majors.   Kentucky’s bow opener begins the first Saturday in September, so there is a likelihood a hunter can claim a velvet whitetail buck. Majors claims that when bucks...

Dirty: The Comeback Kid

Blake Garrett of Unfiltered Outdoors cannot be stopped this season! I’m convinced that by the time this hunting season is over, I will have written my first biography based on his life. Another “congratulations” is in order! With his majestic mullet flapping in the crisp, cool October wind, Blake took down his third buck of the season. This 160” named Dirty hit the ground of a Missouri timber river bottom on October 15th, a year and a day after Blake’s last, almost fatal, encounter with the 6-year-old.    It wasn’t until May 2018 that Dirty made his first appearance. He didn’t reside on the property until the Big Tine Protein Plus started getting put out. “When we started feeding on that farm, that was when he came in for the first time,”...
