The Brett Herbeck Buck




Thanks for viewing my new site dedicated to my buck which was taken on November, 19th 2004 in Macoupin County, Illinois on family property.  Photos are up with lots more to come.  Some of the stats are:

  • 14 measurable points (7 x 7)
  • 28" Main Beams
  • 8 tines 8" or longer with 11-12" G4's
  • 25 1/2" inside spread with 28 1/2" spread at greatest length 
  • 199 7/8" gross typical frame
  • 290+ pounds at 4 1/2 - 5 years of age


  • Boone & Crockett:  212" Non-Typical*.
  • World Classics:  224" Typical - Men's Shotgun World Record.
  • Head Hunter Trophy Club:  220" Typical - 2004 champion.
  • Buckmasters (BTR): 198 7/8" Typical* - No. 2 shotgun
  • Safari Club International:  219 4/8" Non-Typical
  • Highest scoring non-typical deer for 2004 Illinois Big Buck Recognition program.

      * g2 - g3 common based points kept this buck from being a 210 1/8" typical which would have made it a Illinois state record and a new #2 in the world for B & C.  Would have also scored in the perfect category for Buckmasters at around 200" making it #1 overall.
