I’m sure by now you’ve seen many posts “confirming” the tucker buck as the new world record non-typical whitetail. Most of these post have slipped something in that you may not have noticed.
(“World record Hunter taken non-typical”)
Should not be called a “World Record” if it is not the world record.
According to Boone & Crockett the Tucker Buck only ranks 3rd in the non-typical category. This is a quote from their website:
“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. The World’s Record and Number 2 in the non-typical category were both picked up, or found dead and score 333-7/8 and 328-2/8, respectively.”
Now don’t take this the wrong way, the Tucker Buck is an amazing trophy and not putting it down at all. We congratulate Stephen Tucker on the buck of a lifetime.
