Possible world record buck

November 19, 2008 at 01:49 PM

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.

Here are the top 10 non-typicals all-time.

  1. 333 7/8—St. Louis, MO, Picked Up, 1981
  2. 328 2/8—Portage, OH, Picked Up, 1940
  3. 307 5/8—Monroe, IA, Tony W. Lovstuen, 2003
  4. 304 3/8—Fulton, IL, Jerry D. Bryant, 2001
  5. 295 6/8—Winston, MS, Tony Fulton, 1995
  6. 295 3/8—McDonough, IL, Scott R. Dexter, 2004
  7. 295 3/8—Adams, OH, Jonathan R. Schmucker, 2006
  8. 294—Greene, OH, Michael D. Beatty, 2000
  9. 284 3/8—McCulloch, TX, Unknown, 1892
  10. 282—Clay, IA, Larry Raveling, 1973.

i read somewhere that it was pen raised but i guess not

Time will tell. Right now if Boone and Crockett has it up on their Web site I tend to believe it was not pen-raised. But again, nothing is certain yet.

WOW, what a freaky rack! I tend to agree with Jeff.Surely B&C checks out these big deer before they talk about them much.
  You’ll hear every thing these days when it comes to somebody getting a BIG buck.They should make somebody who has a potential world record buck take a lie detector test to make sure everything is on the level.If I was the hunter,i’d want to so I could dispel any rumors.


NICE BUCK!!

yeah i would def. believe that source   but i was on mike hanback’s big deer blog and someone had said it was pen raised   hope not

I have my doubts about this buck.  I seen pictures of it the second week of october.  The story I got was it was a pen raised buck shot in wisconsin.  Something seems fishy to me.

I think that when someone kills a nice buck people need to mind their own biss and not go worring about it. People come up with some of the stupidest things when someone kills a nice buck! like “I herd it was pen-raised” haha

O M G !!!  Where was it taken?

Side note:
Jealous people start ugly rumors every time a big buck is killed.  Rumors cannot exist if people didn’t repeat them.  Try starting a sentence with “I know” instead of “I heard”

I know that somewhere I heard…....LOL

Good job!

Man, that’s an ugly SOB.  I would have died of a heart attack if I saw him.

Posted by Jason I on 11/25 at 12:44 PM

Nice buck it might be pen raised but i wouldn’t run my mouth if i didn’t know. Of course I know that’s hard for some people to do.

Killed at Heartland Wildlife ranch he paid $60000 for it.  what a joke

I actually talked to one of the guides from there.

having hunted in Missouri on the 19th- it was pretty cold that whole week and this dude does not look like he’s dressed for cold weather. Also - notice the trees in the backround- none of the leaves seem to have fallen, very strange, especially for northern Missouri…

I let that mega scrub walk. Didn’t want to waste a tag on him.  SERIOUSLY, HE’S A GIANT. Wouldn’t know were to start when scoring him. Unbelievable mass on that left base. Still don’t see him scoring in the 300’s. BUT, WHAT A STUD!!
