Kurt Boley, Texas

Bucks that are 8 1/2 years old and have gross scores of 181 7/8 B&C points are rare. But rifleman Kurt Boley of Midland, Texas, beat those odds on Nov. 3, 1997. At 6:30 a.m., he watched as this 180-pound 13-pointer appeared with three does in an alfalfa field on Erath County's Celebrity Ranch. A 200-yard shot dumped the great deer.
