Major League Hunter Chapman Scores Kansas Bruiser

For Brent Chapman, the quest is an ongoing one. That quest being the pursuit he is involved in every October and November – to bag a Booner buck, a white-tailed bruiser with a high enough antler score to make the coveted Boone & Crockett Club record book.

A week ago, during the rutting frenzy that takes place every fall in eastern Kansas, Chapman came agonizingly close to fulfilling his quest once and for all. That's when he took a big white-tailed monarch that he had actually passed on the evening before.

"Yeah, I had actually passed on him the night before when he followed a doe across a field," said Chapman, a MLF competitor and the 2012 B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year.

"He came 12 yards under my stand, but I didn't shoot him," he added.


While that might sound crazy to a bass fisherman who doesn't hunt, it probably will not sound crazy at all to one who loves to hunt as much as Chapman does.
