Possible world record buck
There may be a new world record non-typical according to the Boone and Crockett Club.
Displayed on the Boone and Crockett Trophy Watch Web page is the above photograph of Roger Jarvis, who shot a buck that has apparently been scored at 319 inches. That would make the buck the largest ever taken by a hunter. That honor currently belongs to Tony Lovstuen of Monroe, Iowa for a 307 5/8-inch buck.
The overall world record is a non-typical buck found in St. Louis County, Missouri in 1981. That buck scored 333 7/8 inches.
Boone and Crockett said more information will be provided as it becomes available.
