A Tennessee state record – and possibly a world record – white-tailed deer was taken in Sumner County on Monday, Nov. 7, the third day of the state muzzleload season. The non-typical monster has 47 antler points and its Boone and Crockett green score (before the 60-day drying period) is 308 3/8 after deductions. Stephen Tucker, 26, of Gallatin, Tenn. stalked the animal for several days before downing it.
The current Tennessee non-typical record was taken in 2000, also from Sumner County, and had a net score of 244 3/8. The world record non-typical was killed in Albia, Iowa in 2003 and had 38 points and net scored 307 5/8.
Tucker’s prize is at the meat processor, but he estimates the deer to be 3.5 years old and 150 pounds field-dressed. He expected his deer to be a state record but did not even consider the world record. Non-typical antlers are not symmetrical and do not have equal points on each side, like the typical rack does.
