Ohio Whitetail Deer Record

ohio white tail deer state record

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife announced that another record-setting deer has been harvested in southwestern Ohio. On Saturday, Jan. 30, 2010, the 18-point nontypical (nonsymmetrical antlered) deer taken by Brian Stephens on Nov. 30, 2009 with a muzzleloader in Highland County was officially scored.

Deer hunting in Ohio continues to prove itself as world-class. We are seeing the benefits of a successful whitetail deer management program.

In the last decade southwest Ohio has been the setting for numerous records. The Beatty Buck, harvested in Greene County in the fall of 2000 by Mike Beatty, holds the record for nontypical at 304 6/8 and currently ranks as the number one nontypical buck in Ohio, the largest nontypical whitetail deer ever taken by a bow hunter.

A typical white-tailed deer killed by Brad Jerman in 2004 in Warren County, known as the Jerman Buck, became an Ohio record with a score of 201 1/8. In 2006 a world-class buck was harvested by Jonathan Schmucker in Adams County. The deer was scored at 34-point nontypical, 291 2/8 Boone and Crockett and 305 7/8 World Classics.
