The long-time hunter hit the whitetail jackpot in 2007 when he bagged a 14-point Logan County buck that scored 164 3/8 on the Pope and Young Club’s big-game scoring scale.

The buck’s heavy-beamed, high-arching rack caused eyeballs to pop wherever it was exhibited — and it’s still being exhibited nearly two years later. Two national magazine articles have been written about it, and Birchfield has shown the buck at several shows.

It’s a fun story, and you can read it here in the Sunday Gazette-Mail.
