The Whitetails of North America Collection created by John LaBerge of Vergennes, Vermont is a world leading, mint-condition, round up. The collection’s crown jewels include the current world record typical and world record non-typical full mounts. These are flanked by spectacular whitetail typical and non-typical giants, all of which have incredible and in some cases controversial histories. This collection made its debut at the 23rd Annual Yankee Sportsman’s Classic Show held in Essex Jct., Vermont, where it received a very enthusiastic response by show attendees.
John LaBerge began hunting at age eleven learning the ways of the woods from his father and mentor Lionel LaBerge. Since then, John has hunted all over the United States and Canada taking many spectacular whitetails of his own. He has recently turned his attention to teaching his grandchildren how to hunt for trophy whitetails as well.
John has a community-driven passion for the sport. Twenty-three years ago, sitting around the deer camp dinner table, John and his hunting partners bounced around the idea of starting a hunting and fishing exposition. They wanted to create an event that would celebrate our hunting and angling, not only for the most serious sportsmen, but everyone that takes to the woods and their friends and family. The Yankee Sportsman’s Classic was born in a tennis court. Today the show overflows the 100,000 square feet of the Champlain Valley exposition, Vermont’s biggest event venue.
In 2014, when the Classic was unable to book a new notable whitetail collection, John decided to create one of his own. With the assistance of an expert collector, John exceeded his own expectations and assembled this unmatched collection of trophy and world record whitetail replica bucks.
John will continue to add to this collection of whitetails. To find out their availability please contact John LaBerge at 802-238-7501 or [email protected]
