Potential World Record Eight-Point Buck

Potential World Record Eight-Point Buck

Was 2011 the year of the giant eights? First we learned about Mike Kemble's magnificent and near perfect 4x4 that green grossed 186 inches and looked to challenge the 180 3/8 inch mark held by two hunters - Vernon Winter of South Dakota and Victor Bulliner of Michigan. After the 60-day drying period, Kemble's buck scored a very impressive 178 5/8, which set the new Ohio benchmark for typical eight points.

Now Tim Walmsley of Heartland Outdoors is reporting on an Illinois buck that could very well break the typical eight-point record with some room to spare.

Jason Sanders killed a buck on the opening day of the Prairie State's second firearm season that grosses 192 3/8 inches and nets 184 7/8 as 4x4 after side-to-side deductions. There's a 1 6/8-inch sticker off a G2 that brings the final green net score as an eight point to 183 1/8 typical!

Sanders saw the buck during the first firearm season, but was unable to get a clean shot. The second visit from the massive 4x4 went much better as the hunter was able to put the great eight on the turf.


Walmsley reports that the world record 9-point buck is a 4x5 taken in Alberta that netted 182 5/8.
