Canada has long been known, if not for the large numbers of deer, for the size of bucks we have up here. Alberta hunter Helgi Eymundson shot his 280 class buck this past fall. I read first about this double palmated buck on King’s Outdoor World on December 15, 2007.
David King wrote, “An Alberta, Canada native just knocked down a monster whitetail deer about two weeks ago. From what I have been been told this deer is indescribable and kind of resembles the Hole In The Horn buck. It has been green scored at 287 gross and 280 net non-typical B&C.”
Since then it has become official that the Boone and Crockett Club will score the rack in January 2008, after the required trying period, and publish the exact score on their website as soon it becomes available.
Meanwhile, Wild TV had this to say about the Helgi Eymundson buck; “The Eymundson Buck" potentially largest Non-Typical Whitetail deer ever shot in Canada. Gross B & C green score 287 Read the complete story and see all the photos in the February issue of North American Whitetail. The video footage will be made available in February via Recoil - Video on Demand”
