New World Record Whitetail From Tennessee

Record whitetail to be certified by Boone and Crockett

The Tennessean reports Gallatin, Tennessee, resident Stephen Tucker shot a world record whitetail deer in November in Sumner County. Tucker, 27, killed the trophy buck with a muzzleloader. A 60-day drying out period had to take place to allow for possible shrinkage of the antlers. That period ended on Monday, and a Boone and Crockett panel of four judges measured the 47-point rack and gave the deer a score of 312 3/8 inches.

The world record for a deer killed by a hunter is pending official certification. It won’t take place until the 2019 Boone and Crockett awards banquet.
