World-Record Buck Even Bigger Than First Thought

The Brewster Buck is a confirmed world record, but it’s apparently even bigger than we first thought.

The monster Illinois non-typical buck Luke Brewster arrowed in November — which had been officially measured at 320 5/8 inches net when its 60-day score was announced at ATA 2019 in January — was panel-confirmed at 327 7/8 inches last week by the Pope & Young Club.

The buck, which had already been accepted by the Boone & Crockett Club, is officially the planet’s top wild buck ever taken by any weapon.

Pope & Young uses Boone & Crockett’s copyrighted scoring system (by permission) in its record-keeping. The P&Y panel found another 7 2/8 inches of length in the rack’s massive array of abnormal points.

The Brewster Buck ranks No. 3 all-time by Boone & Crockett, whose records also include trophies that are found dead.

An exclusive cover story in the Spring issue of North American Whitetail — now available on newsstands everywhere — details the exciting timeline of Brewster’s historic bowhunt and contains a number of on-the-scene photos.
