Kentucky Trophy Bucks
Home of Kentucky’s Biggest Bucks
Christian County, Kentucky
Where We Hunt:
All of our hunts in KY are held on private farms that we either lease or own. All properties are strictly managed for Trophy Bucks and gobblers. Our Farms are located in Christian, Todd, and Muhlenberg counties in Western KY. Home of the 2006 Kentucky State record non-typical state record buck scoring 246 3/8 inches. In the past 5 years KY has produced 141 bucks qualifying for Boone and Crockett. The 2007 statistics are not in yet but I will keep everyone posted. Its a fact according to QDMA that 1 out of 8 bucks in KY reaches 4 years old qualifying him as a mature trophy buck.

Elsewhere in the Purchase Region, Tony Moore stroked the top non-typical bow kill reported for 2006, with a big daddy 185 2/8 that placed his name in the B&C Awards Book.
His buck came out of Crittenden County, one of a handful of counties that has shown trophy-buck potential year after year. It is always highlighted on the maps indicating counties with high potential. The season before, Crittenden gave up the fourth biggest non-typical. Like last season, ironically, it was the top bow kill in 2005.
When the smoke cleared from his muzzleloader in Lyon County last year, David Stevens made the All-Time B&C Club listings with his 170 5/8 typical, rounding out a solid showing for big bucks in the Purchase Region. Many of the bucks qualifying as trophies last year weren't necessarily in the "top" 10 or 15 ranked scores. But all four bucks taken in the Purchase were.
There is good-quality habitat in most of these counties. A lot of crops are grown in this region, giving whitetail bucks the boost they need to generate those record-book antler lengths and circumferences.
"The Purchase seems to kick out three or four trophy-class whitetails each season," said Yancy. "But I believe the potential for more is probably there.

Coincidentally, another Dan -- Dan Hughes -- shot Kentucky's biggest non-typical the year before in nearby Trigg County, which also lies within the Purchase Region.
Hughes' buck scored 249 3/8 and was "far and away" the leader in that category two seasons ago.
A fellow from Georgia has Harvested a New Possible State Record during the 2008 Rifle Season. The 30 Point Non Typical Deer scores just shy of 261 3/8 th inchs B & C. This is an incredible Deer to be harvested in this area.
