Tennessee Hunter Bags Potential World Record Non-Typical Buck!
This record, potentially world record, buck has a green score of 308 3/8 inches!!! What a Tennessee whopper, and what a story! Check this out:
An incredibly lucky Tennessee hunter hit the jackpot earlier this month when he harvested quite possibly the largest nontypical whitetail buck in the world in Sumner County. After Stephen Tucker spotted the buck two times before (the first time his muzzleloader locked up; the second time the shot was questionable), he didn’t think he’d see the monster again. Lucky for him, he did.
“I was just hoping I would see him again after I passed up the shot the second time I saw him,” Tucker told The Tennessean. “My thinking was the second time I saw him was as far away as he was and as big as he was, I wanted to make sure that I killed him. I didn’t want to cripple him. I said to myself, ‘If I cripple him, nobody will get to kill him.’ The last thing I wanted to do was be the guy who crippled a deer like that.”
Tucker shot the 47 point nontypical whitetail buck on Nov. 8 with his muzzleloader from approximately 40 yards away.
