Dustin Huff on Shooting the Highest-Scoring Typical Whitetail Buck in the U.S. Ever

September 6, 2022 By: NDA Staff

We have a treat for Coffee and Deer listeners in this episode! The highest scoring typical whitetail buck ever shot in the United States was taken last year in Decatur County, Indiana by Dustin Huff, and he joins Nick and NDA’s Chief Communications Officer, Lindsay Thomas, Jr.

The 211 4/8 inch net typical Hoosier State giant fell just 2 1/8 inches short of the world record whitetail shot by Milo Hanson in Saskatchewan, Canada in 1993. Here’s the best part. Dustin had no idea the buck was using the property he had been hunting since he was a kid. The same property where he shot his first deer. After hearing the interview we think you’ll agree that Dustin was the right guy to take this magnificent whitetail. On top of his success as a deer hunter, Dustin is also an accomplished country music singer and songwriter splitting his time between Nashville and his home state of Indiana. We talk about his music career as well as the exciting hunt that has changed his life.

It’s also an “Ask NDA Anything” episode and Nick and the Doctor answer two hunting-related questions that we think you’ll find helpful as you head into the seas. Continuing to grow in popularity, you’ll also hear the B-Team Report. The Doctor describes how a little too much pride ended up hitting him in the wallet, and Nick tells of the hard lesson he learned about making sure you look at your bow sight before taking your first shots at the range. All that and more in one of our best episodes yet, and just in time for deer season!
