Every year there are rumors of record book bucks being killed. The latest is this monster killed in Illinois. What makes this buck different is that it has been green scored and it is ahead of the current record by a crazy 17 inches and if that green score holds it will be the new archery world record along with the Illinois State record.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Virginian Luke Brewster arrowed a freak non-typical buck on Nov. 2 in Edgar County. His buck could have 39 scorable points and is rumored to have green-scored 311 inches.

Illinois Conservation Police Officer Dan Greuel checked the deer on Nov. 3. He confirmed it was taken with a compound bow. So it could challenge for the world record recognized by the Pope and Young Club. He found “no indication that it was a fenced deer” and added, “I saw nothing suspicious. They had it on game camera from before and some of the neighbors had found sheds.” So this buck it 100% legit.

The current P&Y world record holder is Michael Beatty’s 294 inch 39-pointer taken Nov. 8, 2000, in Greene County, Ohio.

Brewster’s buck also should surpass the Illinois state record killed by Jerry Bryant. His buck measured 304 3/8 inches. He shot the 37-pointer Nov. 15, 2001, in Fulton County with a crossbow.
