Three Bowsite regulars (BOHNTR, BOWUNTR and myself) had the recent honor of serving on a Pope and Young Special Panel to measure an incredible non-typical Coues buck that was determined to tie the current world's record! Wes Ely's buck scored an incredible 139 2/8, which matched Terry Edward's buck which was only recently declared a world's record back in April of last year (a score I wasn't sure would ever be matched). See the linked P&Y press release for a photo and more details. Congratulations Wes!
That is one amazing animal

Wow!!!! Tremendous buck & a great story about the hunt!

Very impressive deer. Congrats to the hunter!
What a dandy!!!! Amazing that it tied the existing record...what are the chances of that!
I agree Kurt. A TIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT EVEN A 1/8 in difference?
It is what it is.....
The cool thing is that it's an Arizona buck, not from Mexico, and had eluded Coues crazy guys for several years ...

More impressive is a mature Coues Buck evading the serious predator “the mountain lion”. Well done young man.
Very cool, congrats to the hunter. Here's a better/larger version of the picture.
Thanks for the better pic. Wow, How the hell do you score something like that down to the 1/8"! What a deer! Congrats to the hunter
Outstanding buck and stalk.
