"The Legends-World Record Whitetails" is a five-print series featuring the world record Boone & Crockett and Pope & Young typical and non-typical whitetail deer. It is the result of a highly creative, amibitious, two-year endeavor by acclaimed wildlife artist, Ron Van Gilder. During his two-year odyssey, Van Gilder went to extraordinary lengths to uncover every piece of information and detail surrounding each of the bucks. This included traveling to the exact location where each was either taken or found to study the bucks' core areas, collecting photo reference of the landscape and habitat. He also talked with everyone he could find who originally had been involved with the bucks. Of the "Legends" Van Gilder said, "The thought that very few people have ever seen a world record whitetail alive has intrigued me for some time. The fascinating stories behind each of the world records challenged me to bring them back to life. There were many times during my research that I actually felt I was hunting them myself. I hope my imagination and enthusiasm for these great bucks will spark the viewers."
