A new Ohio State record may have just been harvested this morning Dec. 17th, 2016.
This is the first day of the extended firearm season in Ohio and rumor has it that this buck was shot in Morrow County Ohio by Josh Kraus.
It all started when Josh Kraus posted the picture of the monster on Instagram this afternoon with the caption “got a monster today thank you Lord!!! Buck of a life time been waiting all season for this.”
Many trail cam pictures have surfaced of this magnificent deer.
The green score of this behemoth is said to be 218″
The buck will still have to wait the mandatory 60 day drying period before it can be officially scored.
The current state typical record is currently held by two deer.
The Brad Jerman Buck
And The Bill Kontras Buck
Both with official scores of 201 1/8″
Will Josh Kraus’s buck drop over 16″ in deductions and the drying period? Its hard to say at this point but one thing is for certain, it is a once in a lifetime buck, regardless of where in the record books this deer lands.
