Tennessee resident Stephen Tucker, who has been hunting since the age of 10, describes the day he bagged a possible world record-setting buck as one that just started off like any other day, reports USA Today.
But it turned out to be far from ordinary when Tucker realized just how unique the buck's antlers were— 47-points, non-typical and huge...
Tucker doesn't know what he's going to do with the antlers and is waiting for the 60-day drying period to be completed. If the hunter decides to sell, the antlers could fetch a hefty price.
Jared Steele, owner of Great Basin Antler Buyers in Utah, explains to USA Today:
“It’s hard to put an exact number on it, but to the right buyer it could be worth a hundred grand. Especially if it turns out to be a world record because there are people who collect stuff like that who are millionaires. To them it might be worth more than $100,000. You never know.”
Racks are measured from side to side using the official Boone and Crockett system. According to USA Today, the world record is currently “38 points and scored 307⅝ inches net.”
