Tennessee hunter bags possibly world record-breaking 47-point buck

Tennessee hunter bags possibly world record-breaking 47-point buck

A Tennessee man bagged what state wildlife officials hoped would be world-record whitetail deer earlier this week, but he said the kill was days in the making. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency classified the 47-point antlers as a "non-typical whitetail" with a certified measurement of a little more than 308 inches in length. An Iowa hunter holds the world record for non-typical racks after bagging a deer with antlers that measured 307 and 5/8ths inches.

The antlers on Stephen Tucker's 47-point buck, shot on Monday in Tennessee.

.

The antlers on the buck taken by Tucker will be measured again in January, after a required 60-day drying period, to determine whether the rack breaks the state or world records.

Tucker saw the buck again two days later, about 6 a.m. CT Monday, and killed him with a shot from about 40 yards away.

(NOTE: Captain Grandstaff will be the guest on next week's Tennessee WildCast, TWRA's weekly podcast program). If other certified scorers agree with Captain Grandstaff's recent conclusion - and he noted that so far he is the only professional who has measured the rack - then the next phase of scoring will occur when Boone & Crockett members meet at an awards banquet in the spring of 2019.

Grandstaff measured the antlers at its farthest points using Boone and Crockett Club requirements for non-typical racks. Only time, and the meticulous hands of Boone & Crockett's certified scorers will tell. "It may be an inch less than what I have it at". The unique set of antlers totaled more than 300 inches in length.

Who's up for some deer hunting down south?

"I realize there's only a possibility that it's going to be a world record".

When that happens, other certified scorers will lay tape measures to the rack and ultimately decide if Tennessee's conclusion stands, whatever that conclusion becomes, after January 2017. "All we're anxious about right now is that it's the state record", Tucker said. That deer is the current non-typical world record killed in September of 2003 in Monroe County, Iowa.

"A deer like this deer doesn't come along very often", Grandstaff said. "You would have had to actually see it to understand the amount of nontypical growth it has".
