As Deer & Deer Hunting reported in early February, this 8-point Illinois buck is believed to be the largest net-score 8-pointer ever killed in North America. Just this week, more photos of the buck began circulating all over the Internet. Here are three of them.
According to the Boone and Crockett Club, the buck’s net score of 183-1/8 would rank as the largest ever submitted to the organization.
So far, the story is that Illinois hunter Jason Sanders shot what appears to be the largest main-frame, typical 8-pointer ever killed by a hunter under fair chase conditions. Preliminary scores say the buck NETS 183-1/8 inches. The current world-record typical 8 is 180-3/8 inches.
