P&Y Announces new Non-Typical Whitetail World Record
Chatfield, MN - On Friday, March 1st, the Pope and Young Club convened a Special Panel of Judges in Omaha, Nebraska for a potential P&Y World Record non-typical whitetail. Luke Brewster's incredible buck was shot in Illinois during the 2018 archery season. Measurers present for the Special Panel were Eli Randall, Gil Hernandez, Jack Reneau, Ken Witt, Ricky Krueger, Kyle Lehr, Stan Zirbel and Panel Chairman, Ed Fanchin. With a final score of 327 7/8", Luke's buck was confirmed as the new P&Y World Record non-typical whitetail. This buck surpasses the previous World Record non-typical whitetail shot by Michael Beatty in 2000 by over 33 inches.

"The Brewster buck has been verified as the new Pope and Young World Record with a score of 327 7/8," said Eli Randall, Director of Records for the Pope and Young Club. "The two panels consisted of seven measurers and was overseen by the Panel Chairman. This group represented over 217 years of combined measuring experience. After over eight hours, this incredible whitetails score became official. Congratulations to Luke and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources for practicing sound wildlife management."

"I headed to Omaha with a good feeling but still a tad nervous on how the scorers were going to make calls," said Luke Brewster. "I knew it was scored very conservatively on the initial entry form by measurer Tim Walmsley, but you never know. After a day and a half of waiting in anticipation, Eli Randall informed me of the new panel verified score. I was sent into shock once again as the score increased 7 2/8" from the original entry. Unbelievable. All I can say is that I'm very blessed."

"Congratulations to Luke Brewster on the largest hunter taken whitetail in history," said Justin Spring, Director of Big Game Records for Boone & Crockett. "All hunter conservationists should take great pride in the fact that in the face of the challenges to our wildlife, we continue to see more robust populations than ever before, thanks to the North American model. There couldn't be a more deserving hunter to be attached to the Brewster buck, which is now an iconic legacy of whitetail deer in North America."

This incredible animal has been entered into the 32nd Recording Period-the biennium representing entries accepted into the P&Y Records Program from January 1, 2019, to December 31, 2021. At the close of every biennial recording period, numerical awards and honorable mentions are awarded to the most outstanding bow-harvested animals in each species category that have been entered during this two-year recording period. New world's records are verified and proclaimed, and awards are presented to these outstanding animals during the Pope and Young Club's biennial convention and awards banquet.

So cool. I wonder how old it was! Great genetics!
I wonder the same thing. There is a deer aging site that has a pic of monster like this one and they have it at 11 yrs old.

I have always wondered if true giants are just deer that "won the lottery". Genes-food source-age. For a buck to make it to 11.5 is winning the lottery for most.

Can someone who's an official scorer (are there any left here?) explain why they didn't designate the G1/brow tines? They essentially scored the typical frame as a 6 pt.

There appears to be a matched pair of brow tines present in the photo, but seeing it in person may reveal something different. IDK.

good question
that is not the official score sheet, the official score sheet may have brow times on there, as the official score is 7 inches more then this sheet shows.

it was scored by an official scorer, but the final was scored by a panel of scorers aka judges which may be posted in the magazine NAW who is running with the story
