Possible New World Record Eight Point

Illinois hunter, Jason Sanders, killed this world class 8-pointer during the the Central Illinois shotgun season on December 1, 2011. The massive typical buck reportedly grossed 192 3/8-inches with a 1 6/8-inch sticker off his right G-2. The preliminary Boone & Crockett net score of 183 1/8 would make this the new world record 8-point.

Sanders 8-point has main beams measuring 30 and 32 inches, a mark that places them automatically in the top-five all time Boone and Crockett Club records for longest beam length, and it would be the only eight in that ranking. The buck has an inside spread of 22 3/8-inches and both G-2’s tape out at 14 and 16-inches, with G-3’s coming in at 12-inches.

Although the 60 day drying period is up for an official measurement, a date has not yet been set for the required panel score by the Boone & Crockett Club. It is possible that the additional sticker on the G-2 might classify the buck as a typical 4x5, taking it out of the running as an 8-point.

Two bucks currently hold that top spot with exact scores of 180 3/8-inches, by Vernon Winter from South Dakota in 1965, and Victor Bulliner of Michigan in 2001.
