The world record Boone & Crockett non-typical took me to the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. This buck was found dead, apparently of natural causes, by hunter, Dave Beckman. He in turn notified conservation officer Mike Helland who pick it up for the state of Missouri. After spending a day with Mike, showing me the range of this great whitetail, he took me to the spot where it was found. The rolling hills that rose up from the distant river floodplain were a wonderful setting. Treelines of sycamore and shagbark hickory offered the buck cover as he moved to the lush cropland of the river bottom. At the river, he could vanish in an endless wooded tangle so dense that few hunters dared to enter. It was clear that this buck had led 'the good life.'
