The biggest buck killed in Arkansas last year appeared in daylight just once, and Don Kittler of Carlisle was waiting.
The giant non-typical whitetail scored 207 7/8 on the Boone and Crockett scoring system, winning the 25th Big Buck Classic by a wide margin over a record class of trophy entries Sunday at Barton Coliseum. Usually, the Big Buck Classic contributes about three...

Last season there were five deer taken in the Natural State that scored high enough to make the prestigious Boone & Crockett Club’s all-time record book. But there were others taken that were large enough to make any hunter’s heart beat faster.
