Stephen Tucker must be riding a high right now that he may never come down from. That’s because Stephen did something every other deer hunter in the world wants to achieve. He just achieved the world record for the largest non-typical whitetail killed by a hunter.

Taken in Tennessee, the deer has been recently accepted by the Boone and Crockett Club.

“All deer are unique in some form or another,” said Justin Spring, the Club’s director of big game records. “This particular deer is unique on so many levels.”

Tucker actually took the deer from Sumner County, Tennessee, in 2016. It was a=officially entered into the B&C records at 312-0/8.

The buck had a total of 47 points with 22 of them on the left side and 25 on the right. There are only three other bucks that have had more than 47 scorable points entered.

Of the 5,607 non-typical whitetail deer in the B&C’s Records Program, only 27 (including Tucker’s) of them are from Tennessee.

“If you look at the historical data, one thing that is special about this deer is that the majority of record-book deer from Tennessee have come since the mid-1980s,” Spring explained. “That’s conservation success that is trending. A tip of the cap should go to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and the sportsmen of Tennessee for what they have been able to accomplish with their deer herds.”

“What also makes this particular deer special is an entry score of 312-0/8 on only a 149-1/8 inch typical frame, which includes a modest inside spread of 14-1/8 inches. That’s 162-7/8 inches of abnormal points.”
