A 200-inch typical whitetail has to be the holy grail of hunting. Only a hand full of wild ones are known to exist and it is always a big deal when one is discovered.
The newest top ten typical whitetail of all time has finally been entered into the Boone and Crockett record book after being killed by Fredrick Kyress sometime between 1958 and 1962.
The racks current owner Jay Fish submitted the rack for scoring and when everything was said and done the Kyress Buck lands at number 8 on the all-time list with a typical score of 202 7/8 barely topping the Ewen Buck by 1/8 of an inch.
If the name Jay Fish sounds familiar he is also the the owner of the controversial King Buck, which many claim to be the true world record typical. Fish has had a tumultuous relationship with the Boone and Crockett Club, but has decided to bury the hatchet and work with them to recognize this amazing buck.
Jay Fish posted the following to his Facebook page announcing the confirmation.
OK Friends of the Forest here it is!!!! New Top Ten Typical Whitetail of all time!!! The PA 202 7/8”. We all know my history with B&C, but I felt it was time to bury that chapter. I 100% still stand firmly on what “The King Buck” is!! With no apologies. I did what was right by that deer and hunter.
Moving forward B&C couldn’t have been nicer to deal with. Kyle at B&C was easy to work with. This deer has been accepted by Buckmasters BTR and The Northeast Big Buck Club. All have been easy to work with.
Thanks for your patience as this all came together.
Another one of God’s Beautiful Creations!!!!
What is really cool about this buck is that you can get a chance to actually hold it in your hands. Jay Fish can be found at a bunch of outdoor shows all across the country where he displays some of the most amazing racks of all time. So check your local shows and see if Jay and his Friends of the Forest are coming to a show near you.
