Archery's New #2 Buck?

Archery's New #2 Buck?

When Ohio bowhunter Dan Coffman shot a wide 37-point buck on Oct. 27, 2015, the whitetail world suddenly was abuzz with two questions: What would the deer score, and what were the details of the historic hunt?


The answers to both questions are found in the Spring issue of North American Whitetail magazine, which hits newsstands Feb. 9. In an exclusive 6-page feature, Dan shares the details of his thrilling quest to arrow this free-ranging trophy.



North American Whitetail is the only one with the exclusive story of the Dan Coffman buck.

The Fairfield County monster has been entered into the Pope & Young record book at a whopping 287 5/8 net inches of score. If approved by P&Y, that score would make him the second-largest whitetail ever officially taken with vertical bow. The only one certified as larger is the Mike Beatty buck, which was shot in Ohio's Greene County in 2000.


Along with Dan's amazing whitetail, the Spring issue contains a heavy dose of information on real-world deer management. For starters, there's a year-round planner to help readers time their activities for the greatest boost in habitat quality. Features on no-till food plots and planting chestnut trees for whitetails round out the management coverage. There also are timely features on shed hunting, one of the fastest-growing off-season pursuits for many whitetail enthusiasts.


Revealed at ATA Show 2016, the Dan Coffman buck may be the second biggest archery whitetail of all-time.
