Non Typical State Record Whitetails Ranked

The whitetail deer is the most popular game species in the United States.

In every state that they are hunted (43 of them) there is a state record. This list takes every states record and ranks it according to its Boone and Crockett score. Both hunter killed bucks and picked up bucks qualified for the list.

We scoured the internet to try and find a picture of each buck but there were six that we could not find. If you have a picture of one that we are missing please forward it to us so we can update the list.

When we were compiling the list some states seemed to have some discrepancies about what is in fact was the state record. We did our best in making the correct determination but if there is a different state record please let us know.

So enjoy the big bucks.
