10 Biggest Pope and Young Typicals of All-Time

Simplicity, elegance, symmetry and balance — these words have been used by thousands of hunters over the years to describe the incredibly powerful attraction to bowhunting.

Similarly, these words could also be used to describe the artistic perfection of a beautiful typical whitetail rack. Tall white tines, stacked in line like a picket fence, stretching wide and swollen fat like coke cans at the bases. A giant typical whitetail buck truly is a sight to behold.

With that in mind, we're bringing the two together. It's no easy feat to kill a record-book buck with a bow, but the chances of killing a truly remarkable typical buck are even more rare.

We've compiled the stories and photos of the 10 highest scoring typical whitetail bucks in the Pope and Young record books. You're sure to enjoy these bucks, not only for their size and symmetry, but also for the incredible stories that led to their place in the books. Enjoy.

Mark Kenyon runs Wired To Hunt, one of the top deer hunting resources online, featuring daily deer hunting news, stories and strategies for the whitetail addict.
