How I Shot The World Record Buck

with Mel Johnson

World record holder Mel Johnson.

Mega whitetail bucks are few and far between; just ask 73-year-old Mel Johnson. Mel's world record archery typical whitetail has stood the test of time for 41 hunting seasons. With hunting pressure growing and technology advancing at a rapid pace, it's amazing that Mel's record has lasted as long as it has, but his 204 4/8 buck still sits atop the pile.

Listen in as Mel describes the true story of the events that took place in that Illinois bean field on that sunny fall day.
