Tennessee Hunter Kills Possible World Record Whitetail

posted on November 10, 2016

Amid all the election hoopla, America’s big-game hunters continue to do what they love to do—get out into the forests and fields in pursuit of the wily white-tailed deer. And one Tennessee hunter recently made the best of it, possibly bagging the biggest whitetail ever, period.

On Monday—the day before Election Day—26-year-old Stephen Tucker of Gallatin, Tenn., shot a giant buck that will certainly be the new state record, and maybe even a new world record. The 47-point non-typical buck’s rack was green scored at 313.25 inches gross, with a net score after deductions of 308.375.

The current world record non-typical whitetail had 38 points and scored 307.625 net. Only time will tell what Tucker’s giant will finally score after the required 60-day drying-out period.
