Special Report: New World-Record Mule Deer Tagged in Canada?

By Steven Hill

It happens every year: Deer seasons open, and rumors start zipping around the Internet about the latest record-breaking buck. Lots of these tales never check out, but here’s one that appears to have legs: A potential Pope & Young world-record nontypical muley was reportedly taken in Saskatchewan in early September.

Canadian Cody Robbins, host of the “Live 2 Hunt” TV show and a longtime camera man for professional hunter and TV host Jim Shockey, arrowed the potential world-beater during the first week of September. Robbins could not be reached for comment and no official photos have been released. But two online hunting forums have reported green scores of 294 to 295, and a source close to the situation confirmed for Field & Stream that those score estimates are accurate. The current Pope & Young world record for nontypical mule deer is a 274 7/8-inch buck taken in 1987 in Morgan County, Colorado, by Kenneth Plank.

Nothing is final, of course, until an official Pope & Young measurer puts a tape to the rack after the 60-day drying period passes. But a green score nearly 20 inches above the current world record certainly sets a high bar for the 2011 season—and makes the Saskatchewan muley a buck to watch.

We will provide more details as soon as they are available.

Oh man...why no picture? Pictures are worth a thousand words. Nearly 300 score is unbeliveable...that's why we need a picture.

How about nothings final until we find out exactly where Jim Shockley's camra man actually shot this deer. Hopefully it was in the wild but....

I watched videos of Cody puttin the sneak on 2 monster muleys a couple years back, and one where the dude didn't shoot a freaking giant! I wasn't surprised to see Cody's name attached to world record, and really do not think that he would shoot a muley in a cage when he has rights to such prime land. Jim would suredly fire his ass on the spot and ruin his reputation and future. He seems a class act to me.

I guess we'll wait until November-ish and find out then.

I'm with saintdeer on this. Cody seems like a great guy and I will be extremely happy for him if his score holds.

I saw the same episode where Cody's client had two monsters in range but never pulled the trigger. I also believe Cody has one of the top all-time mountain caribou.

IF the antlers still have velvet does that get included with the mass score? Or do they try to subtract for it? Surely velvet would add a little mass to a rack.

I really doubt there will be anything "fishy" on this buck. Jim Shockey, unlike alot of the other video guys, is the real deal.Yeah he uses bait, which is legal, on some of his canadian hunting ground, but he is not going to do anything to hurt his image or allow anyone associated with him to.Besides he does not need too. He has leases on some of the best hunting ground anywhere, and every year does extreme hunts around the world that would kill most of us.

As for possibly being a high fence deer, mule deer do not adapt to a fenced area and will not grow giant racks, like a whitetail behind a fence.

He can be scored for the velvet catagory or it will need to be stripped off for the non-typical record in the book.

The sucky thing is my son and I are heading to wyoming next wednsday, bowhunting antelope and mule deer on blm ground and I really did not need to see that picture.

I'd like to take this opportunity to shout out to the western hunters that claim you need to make 300-400 yard shots to be successful. Here's a massive buck taken with a bow for your thoughts. Probably taken around 30 yards. Less than one tenth of the range some say is about as close as you can get...

Anyways, is anyone else as big of a nerd as I am, and tried to see what brand of binoculars he was using?

@horseshoe_lake - "this type of guy" you speak of has already made his career. You obviously don't know Cody Robbins or anything about him. This story is not about making a career but continuing his already great career. Cody has a number of deer on P&Y and B&C records. I think your jealousy has shown in making a public statement like this. AND to other comments made - Cody Robbins is an ethical and Very good bowhunter. Keep up the good work Cody and congratulations on another superb deer!!

Great buck, and hope it makes the new #1 record. Cody is the real deal, and a super nice dude on top of it all.

He's got more integrity in the tip of his trigger finger than many of the jealous types instantly recognizable in the negative posts here have in their whole being!

When one meets and if lucky - gets the privilege of being around and hunting with Cody and Jim Shockey, that person has just come into the best hunting circle in existence today, bar none..!!

Wonderful, wonderful Cody, my stetsons off to you again.

This is in Saskatchewan where I hunt we have a vast hunting area that is mostly private land in the south half that you go around knocking on doors to get permission or hunt unposted land. From what I know of Cody you can bet he did his home work on this deer got permission and spent every hour of legal time hunting this deer till he got him. 99% of Sask resident don’t have PRIVATE hunting land or leases, we just head out and start hunting. His hunting is 100% fair chase and more an most people can imagine we live in a province that if you spook a buck you get to watch him run away for a full day! It was all captured on camera for his show how much more legit can you get. Congrats to Cody on a great buck, He is the Mule deer king!

Re; David Park
In Saskatchewan you have to be a resident of the province to hunt mule deer, its either a draw system or you can buy a over the counter archery mulie tag. So the answer to your question is yes if you lived here it could have been you, heck it could have been me. Remember hunting is his job and this kid has a passion for mule deer and I don’t think any one can take that away from him.

I personally know Cody and for anyone that is either skepticle or have nothing but negative comments I will say only this. He is the real deal. Cody is only looking after his career and livelyhood. When the photo's, story and video finally are shown all that have nothing better to say will, without a doubt, not offer up an apology for thier ignorance. The footage will air on his show and for those not in the know, there is no mule deer farms in Saskatchewan! All his hunts are legal and fair chase, period! His knowledge of Mule deer is second to none as I am sure Jim Shockey would attest to. Cody shoots an APA bow, uses Vortex binoculers etc. These are all sponsers of his show. And yes the tape will settle the matter and as I know him, the claim would not have been made with so much riding on the line. The fact that pictures are not available are due to them being released via Big Buck Magazine as they too are a sponser of his show, and it only seems fitting to give Garry Donald the rights to publication.

Finally it is nice to see some well wishers and they are appreciated.

What is happening with his APA sponsorship now that Bowtech is throwing alot of stuff his way? Heard from some locals to the area that thought he was sponsored by Bowtech. I even heard they wanted to refilm his hunt to make it look like he shot it with a Bowtech and not an APA. Something should be released to clear the air on this subject quickly, before rumours like this overshadow the actual accomplishment of getting a World Record.

Norsask what you have heard is part truth, Cody has been approached and is now sponsered by Bowtech as he is breaking out into The Outdoor Channel this 2012 and APA could not afford the rate for sponsership in the US market. Good for Cody, Bad for APA! But the fact remains that the deer was harvested with an APA bow and the film will still show that, maybe the badging will be blurred who knows for sure. The price of trying to make a living in the outdoors!! The shows for outddor channel will also be edited etc.... by Shockey's editing team so Cody can focus on hunting more.

Beautiful deer no doubt but the sad thing is after getting this remarkable animal I feel greed has overcome this great Canadian hunter which is surprizing as his mentor Jim Shockey still knows his roots and always pays tribute to where he got is start. He still uses his trusted sponsers and does well I am sure. In his seasons of hunts he always reminds his fans of the product and gear that helped him get his trophies in that season even if he changes the following year. Big Buck magazine always there for Cody and we read the news in Eastmans Magizine? Does a couple of grand really replace loyalty? The weapon of choice that season APA bows and I haven't seen or heard mention of the only Canadian made product now signs with another bow company for 20 some grand with insentives? It is business, don't get me wrong, I understand but we should always reconize the people who help us get there....Jim always had. New season new products I get it but give credit for the people who helped you out in that particular year thats all. I am a believer our Past reflects or Future and I hope the best for you Cody. I only wish the hunger for the hunt was a strong as the hunger for the money in the bank.

He can be scored for the velvet catagory or it will need to be stripped off for the non-typical record in the book.

The sucky thing is my son and I are heading to wyoming next wednsday, bowhunting antelope and mule deer on blm ground and I really did not need to see that picture.

Something is very fishy! That is not your normal trophy pose for picture taking. Still a nice buck, not sure though about the legitimacy of it.

I read the headline and eagerly begin to read, then I realize it's about the horns. Nice but um, what does it weigh?

This type of guy makes his career on one deer like this. He will release official photos, but probably on his own site and with great fan fare.

How about nothings final until we find out exactly where Jim Shockley's camra man actually shot this deer. Hopefully it was in the wild but....
