“Tennessee Tucker Buck” may set new world record

Nashville, Tenn. (WDEF) — Boone and Crockett officials scored a 47-point buck Monday nicknamed the “Tennessee Tucker Buck” at the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) headquarters in Nashville, taking it one step closer to becoming a world record for a non-typical deer rack.

The buck was harvested during a recent muzzleloader season in Sumner county by 26 year old Stephen Tucker of Gallatin.

According to TWRA officials, the deer rack scored 312 3/8 in the Boone and Crockett tabulation that was held 60 days after the original score indicated the buck may be world record.

The previous record is 307 5/8 set by Tony Lovsteun in Albia, Iowa when Lovsteun was 15 years old.

Tucker’s harvest occurred from roughly 40 yards away on land his family has leased to farm for 40 years.
