Wednesday, February 15, 2017 - A deer taken in Tennessee this past season has been accepted by the Boone and Crockett Club with an entry score surpassing the current record taken by a hunter.
"All deer are unique in some form or another," said Justin Spring, the Club's director of big game records. "This particular deer is unique on so many levels."
Hunter, Stephen Tucker using a muzzleloader, took the deer from Sumner County, Tennessee, in 2016. Its official entry score into Boone and Crockett records is 312-0/8. This score surpasses a deer taken from Monroe Country, Iowa, in 2003 that scores 307-5/8, which was the largest hunter taken non-typical whitetail and ranked Number 3 all-time.
