The "Almost Buck", maybe a better name for this unlucky fellow. Taken in 1956, by Sal Aherns on the family farm near Sauk Centre, MN, Sal tossed the antlers in a swamp after harvesting his deer. Antlers weren't thought of being worth much at the time. He "almost" threw away this megabuck rack, but thought twice and later retrieved them. It is a good thing that he did, as the huge rack created a stir in the vicinity. And for good reason. With beams of 29" and 26 5/8" and bases over 7", it is a world class whitetail. In fact, it grosses over 230" and netted 212" . This would of beaten the majestic Jordan Buck by "almost" six inches. This deer was "almost" declared the new world record typical, but photos surfaced showing 2 adnormal points had been removed in order to boost its typical score. Disqualified from the record books, it still is a tremendous typical rack that "almost" made it to the top!
