I was checking out the top ten Boone and Crockett typical bucks of all time and they are all just some amazing bucks. From the Milo Hanson buck to the John Breen buck they are all beautiful whitetail. I thought I would share the unofficial top ten Boone and Crockett typical bucks with you here.
The Top Ten Boone and Crockett Typical Bucks
- Milo N. Hanson buck Score: 213 5/8 Location: Saskatchewan Year: 1993 A school bus driver had told locals of a huge buck feeding in Milo Hansen’s alfalfa field. Milo and several other hunters made a plan and had a hunter walk into a thicket of willows where the buck was seen to push the buck out and Milo was in the right place at the right time. After 3 shots from Milo’s 308 Winchester the world record was down. Check out this video of an absolute giant The World’s Biggest Typical Whitetail Deer: The Milo Hanson Buck. You can listen to a great podcast interview with Milo Hanson on his incredible buck here Milo Hanson Interview | World Record Whitetail Buck.
- James Jordan buck Score: 206 1/8 Location: Wisconsin Year: 1914 Jim Jordan took this amazing buck to the taxidermist only to have the taxidermist move and he didn’t find his buck until some 64 years later. Just a bizarre story on an amazing whitetail typical buck.
- Larry W. Gibson Score: 205 Location: Missouri Year: 1971 Larry shot this special brute at ten yards with his 308 and then sold the antlers for $200. He could have gotten way more for them if he had of waited.

- Stephen Jansen Score: 204 2/8 Location: Alberta Year: 1967 Stephen Jansen didn’t really care for the buck he said it wasn’t perfectly balanced. Not sure how any deer hunter couldn’t like this awesome buck.
