    I was recently looking at the photos of the top typical and non-typical bucks of all time. I noticed that the majority of the record TYPICAL bucks were taken many years ago while the majority of the NON-TYPICAL were taken fairly recently. Why is that?

    I'm not sure how to word this but I will try my best, so bear with me....
    -When deer start getting that big they are much more likely to grow a non-typical point(Read the story about the king buck - It would of been the world record at 215", but the one point was about 1/2" too close to another point so they called it non-typical and it ended up scoring only 180" - not even close to the top). From plain sight that deer looks completely typical.
    -Back then when the Hansen buck(record typical) was killed there were no game cameras, less human expansion, etc., so deer were able to grow to their full potential more often before getting killed.

      Thank you, that makes sense. What about all those bucks with the gnarly racks though? Just a giant jumbled mess of points. It seems to me that they are more common nowadays.

        Not sure, maybe something to do with more crops being planted, and so the deer have better nutrition? That would be my guess.

          It has to do with genes and to many people trophy hunting if more would pass up a 10 point for an 8 point typical and let the 10 point pass on his genes and no more hunting does after rut there would be more typical antlers when you have farm raised WT yearlings that have 40 points that is a deformity and people keep passing on the deformity there could be a time were a typical buck could be a thing of the past
