A potential world record 47 point buck was taken in Gallatin, TN by 26 year old Stephen Tucker with a shot from approximately 40 yards away with a muzzleloader in Sumner County, TN.
Preliminary measurements before the 60 day drying period were: 47-point non-typical rack at 313 2/8-inches gross. The net score after deductions was 308 3/8. It won’t be scored again until January 2017.
Tennessee’s current state non-typical record is 244 3/8ths inches, also killed by a hunter in Sumner County in 2000.
Tucker estimated the deer weighed 150lbs and was 3 1/2 years old.

All that’s left for a 27-year-old Tennessee man to claim the official world record for a whitetail deer is the certification from the Boone and Crockett Club.
Stephen Tucker of Gallatin killed the trophy buck with a muzzleloader in November in rural Sumner County, but a 60-day drying-out period had to take place to allow for possible shrinkage of the antlers.
That period ended Monday, and a Boone and Crockett panel of four judges measured the 47-point rack, giving the deer a score of 312⅜.
That is larger than the non-typical current net world record of 307⅝ from that Tony Lovstuen in Albia, Iowa, killed in 2003. That deer had 38 points.
Congratulations on the new world record buck!!
