A New Mississippi Record Buck?

Postby Ben Sobieck » Tue Dec 21, 2010 11:58 am

From the Mississippi Sportsman

[The buck] has been green scored by state officials at a gross of 198 4/8 Pope & Young, with a net of 176 inches.

If the net measurements hold, Will Rives’ buck will be the state record archery-killed typical deer. The current record is a 167 2/8-inch Tallahatchee County beast arrowed by Rob Stockett III in 2007.

Rives’ buck was killed the afternoon of Dec. 14 after the store shooter for Bowie Outfitters found a funnel between a thick cypress brake and a road on a Jefferson County piece of property.

Wow. I didn't know they grew them that big in Mississippi.

There is another one for the bowhunters. Great buck!
If you can find it you can kill it.
