Deer season is underway in South Dakota but a Tennessee man many have bagged a world record. Twenty-six-year old man named Stephen Tucker spent almost four days trying to shoot the animal in Sumner County.

Last Saturday he spotted the buck and attempted to shoot it with a muzzleloader, but his gun misfired. He saw the animal again later in the day, but was too far away to get what he thought would be a clean shot and the deer got away.

Then on Monday, around 6:00 AM, he spotted it again, and this time took him down from about 40 yards out. The racks measure out to be a 47-point non-typical rack at 313 2/8-inches gross. The net score after deductions was 308-3/8. The world record killed in 2003 by Tony Lovstuen in Albia, Iowa, had 38 points and scored 307-5/8 net. Take a look at the picture of this massive deer here.
