Big Buck Profile: The Chris Theis Buck

The Chris Theis buck is an amazing trophy in more ways than one.


The buck, shot in 1992, has a mess of points and sports some crazy and unusual formations that give it plenty of character and plenty of inches to tally up for its final unofficial score north of 279 inches.


It has 40 points and, if registered, would be the No. 2 all-time rifle kill in Kansas. Even more interesting is the fact that this buck was killed in December and was still in full velvet. The velvet was removed to score the buck.

Another unique point: The buck was Theis' first ever. How about that for starting a hunting career off right?


The buck was killed off a place called Stranger Creek. . . and even more interest to the story of this incredible whitetail.
