On April 1, Dave Altman, Brian Kightlinger and I were interviewed by Gary Drapcho and Mike Ruzzi for WSEE-TV in Erie. Dave killed the 200-class non-typical that I've written about for <span style="font-style: italic">North American Whitetail</span> magazine (September, 2012) and we've discussed on this site. Brian is an official scorer for the Northeast Big Buck Club.

I thought the folks here at HPA would like to see this interview. The buck ended up with an official B&C score of 199 7/8 non-typical, and it ranks #18 among Pennsylvania's all-time non-typical rifle kills. Take a look at this video segment from WSEE's "SportsBlitz".

Here's the link: Dave Altman Buck TV Interview (starts at 1:25). Sorry I can't embed the video here -- I can only post the link to WSEE-TV Erie.

What a deer. Love it when the reporters asked where he harvested the animal and he said nothing...classic.

I'm not much into scores but missing the 200 inch mark by an 1/8 of an inch kinda stinks.Probably shoulda let him go one more year lol.Absolutely incredible deer,especially for this part of the state.

Congrats once again. I find it ironic as all heck that a fella Named Altman shot such a beautiful buck. It's almost Karmic for the anti Gary Alt crowd. A heart felt congrats again on the buck of a life time. "Altman", "Gary Alt" and some say there is no God. Keystonepaul

Would you be disappointed if you played the lottery and won only $199,875, instead of $200,000?

Funny -- the connection between "Altman" and "Alt" never occurred to me. I wonder what people would have thought if we said his name was "Gary" Altman, instead of "Dave" Altman!

I don't care what your view of AR is or whether or not you are a trophy only hunter. That is the kind of a buck dreams are made of. Of course if given the choice, I would rather take a yearling spike because the meat would be more tender.

Sure I would.
