1. The James Jordan Buck

James Jordan Buck

The James Jordan buck is a legendary whitetail and is one of the biggest whitetail bucks ever killed. Currently it sits as the second largest typical buck killed and features only 3 inches of deductions.

If there was ever such a thing as a perfect 10 pointer or a perfect buck in general, then this is it. With just over 3 inches of deductions on the Boone and Crockett scoring system, this bruiser scored an incredible 206 1/8 inches! When it was shot in 1914, it held the spot as the number 1 typical in the world until Milo Hanson’s buck was shot in 1993. Many hunters and sportsmen actually believe that the James Jordan buck should be the number one buck in the world and it does look more impressive than Hanson’s. However, based on the current Boone and Crockett scoring system, it is the number 2 and is still a magnificent animal nonetheless.
