New state record buck could be the fourth biggest of all time!

Brian Butcher harvested a monster buck in Chase county Kansas. Butcher was bowhunting last October when he shot the world-class non-typical buck. The buck’s 67 scorable points were measured Jan. 3 by Boone and Crockett and had a net score of 321 3/8! That score makes the Butcher buck the biggest non-typical archery buck in Kansas by 57 2/8 inches. It will also become the 4th biggest non-typical whitetail deer ever.

“When I first saw it, I thought it had some branches or grass tangled up in its antlers,” said Butcher. “But when I looked at him with binoculars, I realized it was all antlers.”

“I had the most opposite feeling of ‘ground shrinkage’ possible. I was in complete shock.”

It took the Boone and Crocket measurers over 5 hours to score the buck. The score sheet and entry materials on Butcher’s buck have been mailed to the Boone and Crockett Club headquarters for verification and acceptance. Since this is such a high ranking buck, it will be measured again by a panel of judges at the 2022 award ceremony.
