Few weeks ago I was at my lease filling feeders and on the way home I saw something I thought I would never see in my life. There is a high fence place not far from us that I always look at when I drive by trying to see what they have but usually all I see are some exotics and an occasional 120" or less buck. This time I was doing about 70mph and saw a buck that just blew my mind so I turned around. My Dad was with me and asked what I was doing and I told him I just saw a 300"+ non typical with points going everywere! We turned around and thankfully the buck was still there so he could see I wasn't losing my mind and I was able to video it with my phone before he got uncomfortable and started to head back into the brush.

Anyway I have watched the footage over and over again and best I can tell the deer has 42 points, 4 drop tines (one of which is 10"-12"), probably 24"+ inside spread, and best I can tell he will score 325"-350"NT.

Now for the "what if" part. With all these giant bucks being grown on deer farms now and being turned loose on high fence places for breeding, hunting, or whatever else they do with them at some point one of these giants is going to get loose and get shot on a neighboring low fence property.

Does that buck become the next state or possibly even a world record? popcorn

Doubt it even if the tag is gone and there is a hole in the ear for that tag.

I actually don't have any pics, just video. I have sent the video to a few people and some say they cant see it well enough to even tell its a deer and others say they can see it just fine. I may see if I can take some screen shots of the video tomorrow. If that works out I will post some then.

A good taxidermist can fix that hole in the ear, like it was never there.

I do hunt Coke county. I would rather not give any specifics though on the deers location. Crazy people do crazy things for deer a whole lot smaller than the one I saw.

Those type deer are pretty common in the pens these days.

I'm sure some "escapees" are in the books already, but any potential state or world record would be investigated, vetted, and scrutinized to the max - by both the media and B&C. The deer killed would be a known deer if it was an "escapee" and would not be allowed as a record per B&C requirements.

Many thought the giant Missouri nontypical that currently holds the first nontypical spot was an "escapee". Some still do. It was a "pick up" not taken by a hunter. B&C did a big investigation and could find no evidence of that.

A more thorny potential issue is the taking of a big animal that is an "escapee" from years back that was young and then grew to record size.

The man that shot such a deer would have to be considered the greatest of all hunters, I'd think.
