Awesome buck! Congrats!!
I believe somebody posted a trail cam pic of this buck a few months ago.
Score? Kill pics? Story?
This is the second different deer that I've heard of that was the new Arkansas State Record bow kill. Who determines which deer makes the books and where can I find the "official" information?
Awesome buck. Congrats.
Scored 179 and change this weekend at the the Arkansas Sportshow in Jonesboro this weekend.
State record?? That 200 + incher was killed with a bow and it was at the top if the archery list last I looked
I would NEVER have guessed that buck to be 179. Old boy holding it must me a BIG guy.
The Shane frost buck scored 216 7/8". It was at the sportsman show to.
This is state record typical
I'm just wondering how you get it to be a state record. Who does the "official" scoring of the deer, and is their word gospel? Also, where are the state record scores listed? Kenn Young's site has some information listed, but I've heard the state's archery record is different than what he has stated. Who is right? How do you go about getting your deer recognized as the state record.
let me rephrase my statement, P and Y won't accept this score, because of the broken extra main beam. B and C will accept it but P and Y won't.
That's a dandy!!!
LHHC, did you kill it? Really nice deer! Can we hear the story and maybe another pic or 2. Congrats to whomever whacked em.
That picture doesnt give that deer justice. It is a monster. And it is the new state record TYPICAL archery.
And shanes deer that scored 216 5/8 is the potental NON TYPICAL state record.

the typical archery previous record was 177 and some change
the non typical archery state record is 215 and some change.
Nice Buck! I don't think it will hold up! I know of one still has 30days left to dry that green score over 185! Heck of a deer he is holding!
Unless things have changed, AGFC does not keep official records of deer, but many states do. The "records" are the B&C records that have been recorded for B&C.Who determines which deer makes the books and where can I find the "official" information?
As far as Shane's deer and recording it, Boone and Crockett will accept it, but Pope and Young will not. The reason B&C will accept it is because he has documentation that can prove that the broken beam came from that deer. He has pictures of the deer before the beam was broken. He later got pictures of the deer with the beam broken off, then with some help, found the broken beam. After finding the broken beam, he killed the deer. There is absolutely no doubt that the beam came from that deer.Why not?
This is my understanding and not official word.
Wow! Can't wait to see that one!Nice Buck! I don't think it will hold up! I know of one still has 30days left to dry that green score over 185! Heck of a deer he is holding!
That is an incredible deer. I love the look of all big deer, trash, droptines, etc but there is something just really cool about a big typical!
You are right about rumors, and that is the reason I didn't post any stories. Because I don't know what is truth or fiction. And you are right every deer killed there ends up being rumors about them, heck my good friend that helped drag my deer out was ask how much trouble I got in for killing that deer while tresspassing. Lol I.killed it on my private family owned ground. So I apologize for the comment I made.
It is a very impressive deer
