Short answer is no. Longer answer is awards or all time!? There is a difference and I may be very close with a 2017 Coues buck.....for awards, which is 100" vs 110" for all time. He green scores over 100". Also had a couple Mt goats miss by awards by ¾" and 1", plus an elk miss awards by 2-3/8 ". I also missed a pronghorn and bighorn in my younger days that were B&C caliber.

Caz, as we noted in some PMs it is a difficult mark to arrow a B&C critter. Congrats on yours!

2 white tails, all time. A few others that make recording period. If you hunt a lot, you eventually get lucky. My problem is passing up the ones that are about half way in between P&Y and B&C. I just can't do it.

Lived in Iowa all my 39 years. Only booner I've ever even seen was out of state. Killed a gross 165 though. And if you round up that's 170. Lol

16-Jan-17
The P&Y minimum for Typical Whitetail is 125 and All time B&C is 170.

The leap from P&Y to B&C's minimum is huge and truly a fine accomplishment with archery equipment! Congrats to you guys who have done it.

I know some guys with entries:)

QL Caribou. Award. Just missed all time. But who is keeping score anyways;)

From: Zbone
16-Jan-17
Nope, there ain't no Booners in Ohio...8^)

Not really into the record book thing although use the B&C scoring system when talking big whitetail bucks with others to get an idea of size... BUT, if ever fortuneate to kill one that'd net over 170" typical or 195" nontypical, would enter it becasuse believe an animal of that caiber deserves the reconition...

One comes close though, a smooth clean 5x5 nets in the high 160s, but he won't quite reach the mystical 170" mark so I never had him officially scored... Years ago, officially entered one in our state org and P&Y, but won't likely do that again unless it qualifies for B&C, but at my age now won't likely ever happen...

Congrats to those who have and best of luck to those who know of one's where abouts...8^)

In 16 years of whitetail hunting, mostly PA, I don't think I've ever seen one better than 140ish. I've seen a few PA elk that easily make it and one elk in Idaho that was pushing it.

What was not mentioned is Rock's four Booners were taken with a recurve bow. I bring that up to reinforce that "traditional" equipment is an effective weapon for big game hunting, as well as Ron's accomplishments. I notice there are several other trad shooters posting, as well.

Yes wish I had what you got so I could pound my chest on every website there is!

Yes proud of my wife, Oompa Loompa I hope you are to as I hope other men are the same. Actually I was just trying to be humorous I can see it upset the little guy again and I'm sorry about that

No I don't have a shrinking ego trust me I'm in my prime.

Nick Let me know if you want to hunt with me this year? As I said I will even pick you up at the airport.

Now for Ego or is it little man syndrome to put all this up on every page on every forum out there.

At least your ego has not dwindled one bit. I googled (Nick Muche world's greatest bowhunter) wow 34 pages of your success on over 15 different websites!!!

TBM cannot even claim that kind of ego trip even with the ham blaster!!!

Thanks, the one deer may be (at least at the time) the longest paired tine whitey. 17 3/8 & 16 6/8. I don't know if I still have a picture in the buckmaster rec book, should have score sheet too. At the time it was Ohio's no. 2 typical (B&C) w/ bow, 1998. Story and all can be googled, Ed Waite Jr (great guy, loves scoring) scored and wrote an article.

There's generally not much doubt when you see one on the hoof. The only time I've ever had WT Booner in bow range I had a Hawkins black powder rifle in my hands-and the firing cap just went "pop". Still haunts me. Congrats to all

What a stud - did you happen upon him or did you find and wait until opening day? I can't remember the story. Pretty sure I read it in a magazine. Pronghorns are my favorite.

BTW A while ago I did some calculations on B&C WT deer - less than 10 a year are killed and scored in every state. It doesn't happen often so if you have smile cause you are lucky!!!!!!

Sage, I watched and photographed him for a couple months before the season, along with another buck that I still think was the bigger of the two. I didn't sleep very well the night before the hunt, knowing there would be 110 hunters in a very small hunt area the next morning.

BigDan? Yes I know, just poking at those who have issues when someone sits on an animal that they kill,

Aka OK to kill but not OK to sit on it??? I never understood that liberal mentality.

it's funny cause that pic of BigDan sitting on that bull is one of my fav's. I take a lot of time in setting up pics, but I think the reason I like that particular pic so much is because it so obviously shows a guy who just loves to hunt elk and just killed a big one. Not a guy posing for pics he is hoping to send to 35 publications before the morning is through, just a legit hunter. It's why we love the "old photos" from "back in the day" so much. You see the pureness of the hunt, and that's what I see in that photo along with a just plain giant elk.

Is Kelly saying that "was" a booner, or "still is" a booner? If "still is", then I've had close to 100 booners before I got married (now just 1).

Surprising, keep seeing so called "gross" Booners, but sorry there ain't no just thing... If it don't "net" it ain't a Booner, and why a B&C animal is so exceptional and distinguished...

Attached is Buddy's 168-6/8" official score, which is an inch and quarter off B&C qualifier... The left G4 is a wash, and comes that close as a 4x4... Notice the long sticker coming off the right G2... Break a couple inches off, it'd qualify, but it still ain't no Booner....

Hey ohiohunter, this buck had the longest G2s I've ever seen... Killed in 2003, I think they were both over 17" if I remember correctly...

I forgot I also have a Whitetail that just missed B and C by only 35 inches

Impressive, those kickers will kick you in the teeth. Mine had 5 totaling over 9". I'm kinda shocked that guys deer didn't score higher, esp when I consider my deer's g4's. One was decent, but the other was a pathetic flattened out crab claw looking thing 3" tops.

What state?

I'm with you Zbone, nets aren't just for fishing.

From: Zbone

ohiohunter - Ohio, 2003 shotgun killed during statewide firearm season... That long sticker was around 6 - 7" (or over 8, but don't remember) and I think there was another (small) one photo doesn't show, so if clean, would've scored 175+ as an eight point, and yeah, that's impressive if ya think about it...

BTW, notice there ain't no long arms in that photo...8^)

I have always wondered, what is the average number of whitetails per year entered that are killed with a bow?

25-Jan-17
kellyharris,

Don't be too critical of Bigdan's photo, I'm sure you spend your fair share of time on top of yours too... LOL!

IF that kicker is 8" a lot of us here have a new career in hollywood!

ohiohunter - I don't know, look at those guys hands and fingers...8^)))

Seen my Bud recently, and he bowkilled a nice buck this season, and has actually killed a couple dandys since with his bow, but none of that caliber... As said, I don't remember the stickers length but will ask next time I see him...

At the time he killed that buck I didn't put a tape on it but thought it'd make B&C, and he didn't know much about or wasn't into records keeping until after he had it officially measured and when it told me the score, I JOKINGLY told him he shoulda took a hammer and chipped a couple inches off the sticker...8^) He just laughed...8^)))

This one missed all-time by a quarter inch (49 6/8”). 5/8” of broken right horn was the difference!
