Happy New Year, the day when most Ohio deer hunters resolve to kill a giant, a whitetail buck that merits a spot in the Ohio record book. Listed here are the top 15 “typical” bucks and the top 15 non-typical bucks as listed in the record books kept by the Ohio Big Bucks Club, an elite club indeed considering a hunter has to tag a real trophy to make the minimum grade.
How big is big? Consider this, antler scores are reached by exact measurements of mass, tine length, and spread. A really large eight point buck is never large enough. A really, really big eight point buck might make it but don’t bet the farm on it.
Antlers are never scored until they dry for several days to allow for shrinkage. The Ohio Big Buck Club record books are now online and can be searched in many ways.
