There have been far more 300" non-typical bucks killed since the early 2000s than ever documented before the year 2000. So what gives? Gordon Whittington, the Editor in Chief of North American Whitetail joins us for a second time to explore just that. Is it genetics, is it food, what can history tell us from hundreds of years ago, what about the big deer that came in the decades before the new millennium? We discuss all this in detail and dig deep into the Luke Brewster buck story, the monster Illinois buck from 2018, currently featured in North American Whitetail Magazine.
