Default Helgie Eymundson buck officially scored

Ran into Helgie at SHOT Show and found out the official score on his buck is 276 1/8. That should put it at #15 in the world but Helgie told me that it would require panel scoring at the next B&C panel. What an awesome Alberta deer and a most gracious hunter.....It was a real pleasure to shake his hand.

That is one incredible deer.
Apparently there is suppose to be a write up of it an a February issue of a North American Whitetail. I haven't seen it on any newsstands yet.
The hunt is also suppose to be available on Wild TV Recoil soon.
Any rumors as to what part of the province it came from?

I picked up an autographed copy last week at the show. Another treasure to add to my growing collection.

It was apparently shot near Jarvie.

I actually hunted within a couple miles of where Helgie took that great buck. I guess it wasn't my turn to win the lottery. Can't wait to see the hunt on wild tv's "Recoil on demand". Going to come out this month I read on the website.

I suspect there will be some buyers interested in this buck for sure....depending on your definition of huge cash, it could likely fetch a hefty sum if he decides to sell it.

What the Deal on the B&C Panel having to look at it? I know with that type of palmation, this is normal course...

My understanding is the panel meets every three years.....I think they met last year, so next time will be 2010...

Does this mean this buck won't be 100% official until then, or is the panel more of a formality?

B&C often requires animals that score very high in the books to be panel scored before their score becomes official. They will be listed in the books with an * until the panel gives them an official score.

The strange thing is, if you refuse to send it for panel scoring, it is removed from the books all together. I had a buddy that shot the world record mountain caribou and it was listed with an * for a number of years but as he refused to send it for panel scoring, they eventually removed it from the book.

I guess I understand the confirmation of "big scorers" by the panel....The thing that sucks is if you have to wait up to three years, I assume the antlers will still shrink a tad more from the 60 day drying period....so if there is 1/8" difference from the first official measure to the panel measure, do they change it.....

I guess it really isn't that big of a deal, hell if I ever get something that requires panel to score it....who cares what the final score is....

It's my understanding that the panel does allow for additional shrinkage but I'm not exactly sure how they calculate it.

That's my understanding as well. I don't think there are exact numbers for the excess shrinkage they allow.

Panel measuring is just a way to ensure the records are as accurate as possible. It makes sense to me that world records or near-world records should be confirmed by more than one set of eyes. That tough part is that it is the trophy owner's responsibility to cover the costs of shipping it to the panel. This can be pretty pricey in the case of Moose, Caribou etc. but I think it is worth it. In some circumstances B&C or P&Y can arrange a smaller panel of measurer's closer to the trophy owner if need be.
