Texas hunter Philip Kalmbach, with guide Tevor Olsen of Central Kansas Whitetails, were welcomed to the tree stand with 30mph winds for a Kansas bow hunt. The wind didn’t matter, and Phillip made a perfect shot on this massive deer. The buck had a 29.5-inch main beam, a 25-inch spread, 11-inch brow tine, and a 16-inch G2 to score roughly 189 7/8-inch. If that score holds it’ll land in the top 5 all-time 8-point Boone & Crockett bucks.
From the Central Kansas Whitetails Facebook page, “Check out what we knocked down yesterday! Philip got a deer of a lifetime with us. Will probably measure as one of the top five 8 point bucks in the world…with a broken main beam! The rough gross score was 189 7/8! We are so excited for him, and happy we got to put him on it.”
Boone and Crockett is the oldest wildlife conservation organization in North America, having been founded in 1887 by Theodore Roosevelt and George Bird Grinnell. Official measurements cannot be taken until the antlers have air dried at normal room temperature for at least 60 days after the animal was killed.
