Record Buck Shot In Lycoming County
24 Point Buck Shot in Trout Run, PA during rifle season. The hunter saw it chasing a doe and thought it looked pretty big. Shot at 150 yards, field dressed at 215 lbs. He’s been told the head might sell for $100K to 200K.
North American Whitetail shot the story and it will air next fall. Buck Master measured the antlers and said it is a new state record. Boone & Crockett will wait until the antlers dry and then measure, but it scored a preliminary 287. The state record was broken a few years ago with a score of 260.
UPDATE: This was not a PA deer. Seems many have been fooled by this story: http://mikehanback.blogs.com/bigbuckzone/2006/05/another_mysteri.html
