I live in Ohio and have been hearing rumors about this for about a month. No pictures yet. Official score is 304 6/8.

DAMN!! There was a post and a pic on this right after it happened, but it didn't have a story, so it could've been a hoax. But this is the real thing?!?!?! WOW!

My picture and story came from Yahoo. According to the Dayton Daily news story the mounted deer head will be at the SHOT Show in New Orleans this weekend and in Cincinnati on January 19-21. More from the artice:
Quote:
The 39-point antlers were officially scored on Sunday at 304 6/8, making it the largest rack on a deer ever killed by a hunter in the world. Only two others have ever scored higher, but they were found and picked up without anyone knowing how the animal died.

Previously, the largest deer known to be taken by a hunter was one from Mississippi that scored at 295.

The only two larger racks are the "Missouri Monarch," which scored 333 7/8 and the "Hole-In-The-Horn" rack at 328 2/8. The Missouri rack was found near St. Louis in 1981. The "Hole in the Horn" deer was found dead by a railroad track near Ravenna in 1940.

"This is incredibly exciting," said Mike Budzik, chief of the Ohio Division of Wildlife. "Of the top three non-typical bucks in the country, two come from Ohio."
So I guess Ravenna is in Ohio. Central Ohio looks like the place to go for huge bucks. I'm sure we'll be seeing more pictures of this buck in all the hunting magazines.

Ravenna is actually in Northeast Ohio, for what it's worth. It's actually only about a 20 minute drive from me, I'm surprised I've never heard about that "legendary buck", but I guess it was a good 40-some years before I was born. I did read about that latest one that was pictured above in a local agricultural newspaper a few weeks ago... makes me wonder if he has friends???
