Justin Spring, assistant director of big game records for the Boone and Crockett Club, was cautious about estimating a score only from photographs.
“It could be around that 300-inch mark,” Spring says. “I wouldn’t say it’s going to be a pending world record if it was taken, but it very well could rank very high if it meets all the criteria for entry.”
Boone & Crockett does not accept bucks with multiple beams. If the buck does indeed have four main beams growing from four pedicles (instead of two beams that grow from two pedicles but split near the skull) it would be disqualified from the record book. Truly gnarly racks like this buck’s can often be the result of a hormone imbalance caused by underdeveloped sex organs—also grounds for disqualification.
