Reportedly green scores 311" and shot in Illinois. Will it make the new nontypical world record?

Game farm?

He looks so depressed. Maybe he was hoping for a 312?

"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 rough scored 311” shattering the non typical whitetail Illinois state record."

That's what it says underneath the pic - on the FB pic I saw earlier this afternoon.

whats always up with the damn tongue ?? .. no one knows how to take good pics ... sheesh .... nice buck,.... unless its high fence, then it sucks ;0)

Fake.....look how droopy those ears are....lol. If that right side was even close to the left he would of been close to 400"....that left side is just CRAZY.

Hell of a buck. Congratulations to the hunter!

Weak G12s. Pass.

There are several other pics, and they're equally as bad...so would a "game farm" allow that? Antlers can do amazing things.

That’s a toad, from what I can see it doesn’t look like it has many deductions.

06-Nov-18
Just think what he would have been if they let him go another year.

From: Mule Power
06-Nov-18
All I see are deductions! Lol

Holy smokes!

Those brows are hilarious. Bucks like that keep me dreaming

From: Genesis

He looks like his local PY scorer just told him it’s the lowest scoring buck ever -142 3/8 net

From: Jack Harris
06-Nov-18
It scores negative180" as a mainframe typical 8, after all the deductions. I'll pass.

From: Big-Al
06-Nov-18
Ha! Pass this buck up? Just think what he would have been? Really? What an absolute beast!!! Congrats to the hunter.

People in the Illinois area say it`s legit. Illinois has produced some whopping non-typicals in years past.

From: Beartrack
06-Nov-18
I would miss a buck like that one!

From: Brotsky
06-Nov-18
I'd probably have the same look on my face as that dude if I killed that buck. It's hard to smile after you crap your pants! Amazing buck!

From: t-roy
06-Nov-18
He’s sidearming it in the pic too! Couldn’t even longarm it properly:-(

How’s come every time something like this gets posted, it’s automatically assumed fake or the guy’s guilty of something before all the facts are known?Must be a bunch of dems on here!

Congrats to the guy and even more special that he was a DAV! Many thanks for his service to our country!

Yup the last big non typical taken in Illinois.

From: Zbone
06-Nov-18
HOLY MOLY!!!

"Reportedly green scores 311" and shot in Illinois. Will it make the new nontypical world record?"

A scorer's nightmare...8^) Wow, and yeah if that 311" score stands up it'll dethrone the P&Y World Record Beatty Buck (score 294") by 17"... Amazing... BTW, was this buck killed with a bow? Don't see bow in picture... Why I asked, if gun or xbow, won't be P&Y...

From: flyingbrass

would have been a good one next year!

From: bowhunter24

WOW!

From: Lee

Can’t be gun as we are in bow season now. Not sure on xbow or bow, though. Both are allowed in archery season.

I think they said the hunter is from Va. or W.Va & is a disabled vet. Congratulations to him..

deer of the year.

From: Catscratch

Awesome deer! I would have shot him if he didn't anything but those browtines and a couple of main beams. What a great forky he would make. He doesn't even need the rest of that stuff. :)

From: Kodiak

It looks photoshopped, to be perfectly honest. If it's real, congrats to the hunter.

I know luke personally and deer is 100% legit. We work together in va. For those saying it’s not a bow kill

From: Kodiak

Cool. Now that's a better pic.

He just showed me trail cam pics of it beginning of last week

From: arlone

Congratulations on a great deer! If he had a "big smile" on his face, some of you would have accused him of being a "hot dog" or "grandstanding"!!

07-Nov-18
congrats very nice good for him , people need to stop hating and accusing

From: Zbone
07-Nov-18
Wv bow hunter - Thanks for the clarifications and pix... Congratulations to your buddy Luke!!!

Yeah, if that 311" score stands up to the panel judging it'll over score P&Y WR...

BTW, photo shows buck alive on Oct 25, curious of date of kill, and bet there was a doe involved...8^) Why I asked date because drying period and eligibility for this P&Y entry period I believe ends Dec 31st... November 1st would be 60 days, but not sure of rules if entry after 60 days of drying or how that works... Next few months of hearing the scoring opinions are gonna be fun, there's a lot of good junk on that rack...8^)

Shot about 4 miles south east of my families farm. Congrats to the guy !

312-3/8 official after drying period-pending WR unless you are talking archery only.

From: Altizer
08-Nov-18
Number 1 doesn’t really matter on a buck like this. It is incredible. Luke is the hero, not for the deer but what he and his fellow service men have done for us. He deserves it and much more. Thanks for your service Luke. God bless you. Even more.

08-Nov-18
Congrats!!! Would not have been possible without that Hoyt bow though:)

From: Zbone

Bowriter - What is "312-3/8 official"??? I'm confused...

08-Nov-18
Dream for any whitetail hunter.

From: Bowriter

Bowriter - What is "312-3/8 official"??? I'm confused...

Not surprised. official means it has been panel scored by official scorers, after the drying period, not a measurement while still green. It is now awaiting 2019 convention. But with a buck that size...who cares. Hope that clears it up for you, Z-bone.

09-Nov-18
Blowmitier is on the case...

Congrats to the hunter. Beyond awesome buck

Bowriter - First I heard 312-3/8, they were saying 311 earlier, and your "WR unless you are talking archery only" comment... Well yeah, we've already established it was a archery kill...

Guess it was the way you phrased it made it confusing...

Am aware of the P&Y panel scoring and be willing to wager that 312-3/8 won't be the final official score after the P&Y panel... The P&Y WR Beatty Buck lost over 10" officially from 304 6/8" (and is STILL officially listed at that by Ohio State record organization BBBC and their 4 man panel) yet official P&Y score is 294"... What I'm trying to say is depends who's doing the scoring on the panel...

Attached photo is current P&Y WR....
