The Story of the Gibson Buck: Larry Gibson went out to fill his freezer with a supply of venison in Randolph County, Missouri, in the fall of 1971. He reportedly shot the buck at no more than 20 yards with a .308. At the time, Gibson was glad to get the meat, but the huge 12-point rack meant little to him so he sold the antlers to the Missouri Show-Me Big Bucks Club for $200, and he hasn't been heard from since. One lesson to be learned from the Gibson buck is that any hunter has a chance of someday bagging an enormous whitetail—not just hardcore trophy hunters.
The Gibson buck has an incredibly beautiful 205" symmetrical rack, with some of the most fluid, well-balanced, and wide-sweeping curves of any. The rack retains its high score with outstanding width and long tines, and very few deductions. Its major flaw is one of the eye guards had been damaged, probably when the buck was in velvet, and is thus considerably shorter than the one on the opposite side.
