A local Gallatin resident just had the hunt of his lifetime earlier this week when he snagged a massive 47-point buck.
The Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency said in a press release that Stephen Tucker was hunting with a muzzleloader in Sumner County when he bagged the record sized animal.
It has a distinctive group of antlers with a total of 47 points totaling over 300 ins in length.

Once the length is officially verified by the state agency, it will break current state record of 244 3/8ths inches, which was also killed by a deer hunter in Sumner County back in the fall of 2000.
As the buck’s rack was so unique and impressive that a captain with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Company had to use Boone & Crockett Golf club requirements to precisely measure it.
