2018 will go down as a tremendous rack year, as some giants are being shot across North America. Will it also be the year the record is broken for the highest-scoring whitetail buck ever killed with a bow?
This picture has been all over social media. Here’s a report from a source I trust:
This buck was killed in Edgar County, Illinois between Paris and Chrisman by a disabled Veteran Luke Brewster of Virginia. His close friend was hunting the buck and he came down and got a shot on him his first day on the hunt. The deer was 100% free range and legal after being investigated by the IDNR.
It has 39 countable points and green scored 311” shattering the non-typical whitetail Illinois state record.
The current archery world record is 294″ taken in Ohio in 2000….Illinois current archery non typical record is 267 1/8″ taken in 2003 by Davy Jones. Time will tell where this Prairie State Giant nets out at.
NEED YOUR HELP: If Luke is indeed from Virginia, my home state, I’d like to talk with him asap about this giant. I have cameramen coming here to Fauquier County November 13-20 to film with me, and we’d love to hook up with Luke and interview him for my TV show, BIG DEER. If anybody knows Luke, tell him to track me down, or send me his contact info. Thanks.
