Monster Bucks

The doors opened Friday afternoon at the ExpoCentre in Topeka on January 26, 2014 to a good crowd of avid deer hunters and vendors and it was a fun filled weekend. With the name Monster Buck Classic the deer hunting show lived up to it’s name and there were plenty of big Kansas brutes to be seen.

The Monster buck contest had some awesome entries and there was a new King of Kansas non-typical crowned as Lucas Cochren’s 238 4/8″ King of Kansas Non-Typical fell to the a non-typical buck taken by Cade Hays with a net score of 239 7/8″, a small 1 and 1/8 inches difference! Both are awesome bucks.

There was so many great venders this year with some really cool hunting products. I saw so many good deer hunting products and will definitely be getting a few of them to get ready for next season. One of my favorite products was the INFERNOEPS™ element protection system. It is a cold weather suit that easily makes into a backpack and I tell you I was impressed with all the features. Hopefully I will be able to do a product review on this bad boy, very nice. If you get a chance go by and check out INFERNOTEK.

It was nice to get to know some of them a little and talk deer hunting. And one of my favorite events was the celebrity bow shoot. Dan Thurston, Matt Duff, Mike Hunsucker and the Heartland Bowhunter crew all did some great shooting with there bows. Matt Duff did great even though he borrowed someone else’s bow to shoot.

We had a great time at the Monster buck Classic this year and look forward to another great show next year. I’m already getting ready for next deer season and plan on doing all I can to get a big Kansas brute with my bow on film and hopefully he’ll be big enough to take one of the King of Kansas crowns. I might as well dream big!

Oh my gosh there was some absolute giants there. There was a big typical monster buck that should be the new Kansas State Record Typical whitetail with a gun(there are some questions about weather or not this buck was legally taken and I will just leave it at that until all the facts come out). He will have to be re-scored in a few days once the 60 day drying period is up and if the buck was legally taken it should be the new #1 typical with a gun in Kansas. He unofficially scored 198 7/8 net. The showroom floor was buzzing when it was announced that a potential Kansas State record whitetail had just been scored. There was a big non-typical monster buck that scored in 250’s gross and netted in the mid 240’s, what a stud. The lucky hunter said they had trail camera pictures of him and had been trying to get him with a bow for a few years but just couldn’t pull it off but this year he took him with a gun. He was an awesome buck for sure. There were so many awesome monster bucks it was unbelievable. The show had a lot of great celebrities also, Spook Spann, Travis “T-Bone” Turner, Lee & Tiffany, Pat & Nicole, Zack Cooper, Dan Thurston were all there. And it was so neat to get to meet them and talk deer hunting with them. They were all so nice and and easy to talk too.

Lee & Tiffany The Crush

Lee & Tiffany The Crush were there meeting people and signing autographs.

There were tons of great vendors with a lot of great products and a lot of great outfitters as well. It was just an all around great show if you love deer hunting. I am already looking forward to next years show. I was fortunate enough to meet the guys running the show and be able to work with them and help them before and during the show and it was a pleasure to meet and work with such a great group of guys and gals. They all worked so hard to bring a great deer hunting show to Kansas and they did just that and I was proud to be a part of it. And I can assure you that they are already working to bring you an even bigger and better show next year. You can visit the official website here for Monster buck Classic.
