It's Official: New World-Record Antelope from New Mexico

Trophy hunter Mike Gallo's pronghorn scoring 96 4/8 Boone and Crockett points has been certified as the new B&C world record. It surpassed the existing record by 1 1/2 inches—a huge margin. Two Arizona antelope were tied for the previous record of 95 B&C points. Gallo shot the animal in Socorro County, New Mexico, in September 2013.

The left horn of the new record antelope measures 18 4/8 inches, and the right horn measures 18 3/8 inches. The prongs measure 7 inches on the right and 6 5/8 inches on the left.

Gallo is no stranger to the record books. In addition to the world record, he has killed the top three pronghorns in New Mexico. The state ranks second in overall B&C pronghorn entries after Wyoming.
