A 47-point buck is the new world record for a non-typical whitetail deer.
Stephen Tucker, 26, hunted the deer with a muzzleloader in Tennessee. According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, officials from Boone and Crockett spent several hours scoring the buck, dubbed Tennessee Tucker Buck.
The deer rack scored 312 3/8 in the Boone and Crockett tabulation. The tabulation was held after 60 days had passed since the original “wet” score indicated that the buck was a potential world record.
