Back in November, a disabled veteran put his tag on a monster buck that could challenge New York non-typical archery record. Now the 60-day drying period is up and it was confirmed that it was indeed the largest buck killed with archery equipment in the state.
According to North American Whitetail, disabled Navy veteran Phillip Pless of Newfane, N.Y. put the smackdown on a monster buck on 8 November 2020.
The buck green scored 222 6/8 inches gross and 213 7/8 inches net. but Pless would still need to wait the required 60 days to get it officially scored.
This past week the Bucks of America Podcast confirmed via FAcebook that Pless’s buck had been scored. The buck grossed 221-3/8 and netted 214-2/8

That score beat the old record from 2011 of Michael Giarraputo that measured 209 6/8.
Congratulations! Phillip on the monster buck.
