The Potential World Record Deer Made an Appearance at the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission

The potential world record whitetail made a special appearance at the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission at a monthly meeting. 

The members of the Tennessee Wildlife Commission received a visit from Stephen Tucker at their most recent monthly meeting. Tucker, who shot the potential world record whitetail, brought the giant 46 point set of antlers with him to the meeting, and several pictures to share as well.

Members of the commission were quite impressed with the rack (as you might imagine). TWRA executive director Ed Carter went as far to say, “The rack is really more impressive when you actually see it in person and look at the thing and see all of the different gyrations that come off of it.”

Tucker keeps the rack in a safe located in a local bank. The buck is the largest ever killed in Tennessee. It could be a world record in the free roaming non-typical killed by a hunter category by the Boone and Crockett Club.

An official Boone and Crockett scorer scored the rack at 308 3/8 inches net the day it was killed. Once the drying period finishes, a panel of scorers from Boone and Crockett will score the deer.

Only then will we find out if it tops the current world record killed by Tony Lovsten in Albia, Iowa, which had 38 points and measured 307 5/8 net.
