Boone and Crockett records for whitetail deer go back 194 years, with tens of thousands of trophy deer dating back to 1830. Did you know that 20% of the biggest bucks ever recorded were entered in just the past seven years!

Since 2017, nine whitetails ranking top 20 All-time in typical or non-typical categories have been added to the record book.

Origins of this significant recent trend can be traced in Boone and Crockett Club’s newly published Records of North American Big Game, 15th Edition.

Hunters can use the data to help plan their next hunt for the buck of a lifetime.

Boone and Crockett documents all whitetails that are entered and reach the 160 typical or 185 non-typical point threshold, however, to be published in this book one must meet or exceed 170 typical or 195 non-typical points.

Current Top 20 All-time whitetails debuting in the 15th Edition include the No. 3 non-typical scoring 327-7/8 from Illinois, No. 4 non-typical scoring 321-3/8 from Kansas, No. 5 non-typical scoring 315-1/8 from Tennessee, No. 4 typical scoring 204-6/8 from Pennsylvania, No. 10 typical scoring 202-3/8 from Arkansas, and the No. 17 non-typical scoring 282-2/8 from Iowa.

Since 2022 the Club has recognized the new No. 2 typical scoring 211-4/8 from Indiana (pictured), No. 3 typical scoring 207-7/8 from Illinois, and the No. 18 typical scoring 200-3/8 from Kentucky.
