Putnam residents among annual ‘Big Buck’ contest winners SUBMITTED ARTICLE SOUTH CHARLESTON – The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (WVDNR) has announced the winners of the 2011 West Virginia Big Buck Contest, according to Gene Thorn, chairman of the West Virginia Big Buck Contest Review Committee. The contest is cosponsored by WVDNR, Izaak Walton League of West Virginia, West Virginia Bowhunters Association, West Virginia Muzzle Loaders Association, West Virginia Physically Challenged Advisory Board and Toyota to recognize sportsmen and women who take an extraordinarily big antlered buck in West Virginia. This past year, 242 hunters had their deer antlers scored at one of the six WVDNR district offices, field offices, or the West Virginia Hunting and Fishing Show in Charleston. Hunters who took 106 big bucks with

gun, muzzleloader, bow, or crossbow (Class Y permit holders) that met the score minimums and other requirements participated in the 2011 Big Buck Contest. Gun Catergory Twenty-eight bucks killed by gun hunters scored above 140 points (typical) or 165 points (non-typical). In the TypicalGun category, the winner was Jonah Adkins from Branchland, West Virginia, with an 11-point buck killed in Lincoln County that scored 163 1/8. The winner this year in the Non-typical Gun category was Brandon Dishner from Athens, West Virginia, with a big 19-point buck from Mercer County that scored 165 4/8. Muzzleloader Category Two muzzleloader hunters killed bucks that scored above 140 points (typical) or 165 points (non-typical). William Fry of Loudonville, Ohio, took a 12-point Ritchie County buck that scored 149 5/8 and was top

Bow Category Bowhunters killed 73 deer that scored above 125 points (typical) or 155 points (nontypical). The winner of the Typical-Bow category was David Miller of Hurricane, West Virginia, with a whopper 12-point buck from Mingo County that scored 171 6/8. David’s buck took over the Number 4 position for Typical Bow kills in the list that ranks the top five buck scores for all time in West Virginia. The Non-typical Bow category winner was Charles Daniel from Hurricane, West Virginia with a big 15-point buck from Cabell County that scored 169 1/8. Physically Challenged Crossbow Category Two bucks were killed by physically-challenged crossbow

hunters that scored above 125 points (typical) or 155 points The Typical(non-typical).

There was no non-typical buck taken with the crossbow this year that met the minimum score. The Boone and Crockett Club or Pope and Young Club rating systems are used to score bucks, depending upon the method of harvest. The Boone and Crockett Club guidelines are used to score deer harvested with a firearm, muzzleloader or crossbow (used by physically-challenged hunters with a Class Y Permit). Certificates are presented for racks scoring at least 140 points typical or 165 points non-typical for firearms and muzzleloaders and scoring at least 125 points typical or 155 points

The winner in each category will receive a plaque during the 2012 National Hunting and Fishing Day Celebration held the last weekend of September at Stonewall Resort State Park in Lewis County. A list of all bucks meeting the minimum qualifications is posted on the Big Buck Contest page of the WVDNR’s website: “The Big Buck Contest Committee congratulates all the hunters who took bucks that qualified for this year’s contest,” Thorn said. “We also thank all the hunters who participated and had antlers scored this past year.”

Grove. Six great-grandchildren and seven step-greatgrandchildren also survive. Born March 19, 1920, in Mount Alto, to the late Luther Lloyd and Mattie Durst Lloyd, Roy was an only child. He spent his early youth in Ohio, where the young family thrived until both parents became seriously ill. By age 7, he was sent to live with his Grandmother Durst on the family farm in West Virginia, where food was plentiful in an area and time when this was not always the case. A World War II Veteran, Mr. Lloyd was awarded the Bronze Star while serving in the 1st Infantry Division (Big Red 1) of the United States Army during the Battle of the Bulge. Immediately after the war, and during the Nuremburg Trials in Germany, he briefly guarded Hermann Goering, second-incommand to Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler. Before returning home from military service in Europe, Roy relocated from Bavaria, Germany, to the French Alps region of France, where he was permitted to further his education at the University of Grenoble. An avid baseball player during his youth and into his early years before the war while attending Marshall College (later, University) in Huntington, Roy returned to school with the help of the G.I. Bill. He pursued his passion for learning over the years, completing his education and earning advanced degrees. A well-liked and respected educator, Mr. Lloyd retired with over 40 years as teacher and principal in the Mason, Jackson and Wetzel county school systems. He remained active and engaged throughout the 30 years following retirement, during which time he enjoyed traveling with family and friends; farming and raising Angus cattle; roaming fields and hills by foot and, later, by four-wheeler; and serving his beloved church as treasurer until his death. Wit and compassion, charm and intelligence embodied this beloved gentleman who hailed from a bygone era. A true inspiration and treasure to all who knew him, Roy will be sorely missed. Funeral services were held Thursday, June 14, at Mount Zion Baptist Church, Fraziers Bottom (Upland), with Pastor Chuck Elkins and the Rev. Robert Johnson officiating. Burial followed in Mount Zion Cemetery. The West Virginia Honor Guard and the American Legion Post No. 23 of Point Pleasant performed a military graveside service.
