Hunter Bags Massive 47-Point Buck, Potentially Sets World Record

A Tennessee hunter may have just broken a world record with this 47-point buck

A hunter in Tennessee is celebrating the hunt of a lifetime.

Stephen Tucker shot the buck with a muzzleloader in Sumner County, Tennessee in November 2016. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency classified the 47-point antlers as a “non-typical whitetail” with a certified measurement of a little more than 308 inches in length.

47-point buck world record

The previous state record of 244 inches was set in 2000.

If other scorers confirm the measurements, Tucker’s kill would shatter the state record and could also beat the current 307 5/8 inches world record buck from Iowa.
