    This buck will take the #4 all time biggest whitetail killed by a hunter. It was killed in Macomb Illinois by muzzle loader. Final score was 301-1/4"!

    man ive seen a lot of monsters latly. the other thread that deer killed in quincy, right now green scores 4-5 inches bigger than the mel-johnson buck.


    Bowhunting's undisputed World Record Typical, the Mel Johnson buck was taken in 1965 in Illinois and scores a staggering 204 4/8 Typical. The only buck to ever receive both the Ishi and Sagamore Hill Awards from Boone & Crockett and Pope & Young.

    I wish it were Quincy, but actually, it was killed near by in Griggsville, IL
    That buck and the one killed in Macomb are both within an hour of Quincy.
