Record Buck Taken In Kansas Illegally

KSCB News - February 13, 2012 8:17 am

Authorities say a Topeka man has been
charged with poaching a 14-point whitetail buck that could have
broken a state record that has stood for more than 35 years.
The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says David
V. Kent was charged in Osage County with eight counts related the
Nov. 11 shooting of the deer. He faces charges of hunting with an
artificial light, hunting during a closed season, and other
charges.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the deer was unofficially scored
at 198 7/8 inches of antler on the Boone & Crockett system. The
state record for a typical whitetail deer shot with a gun is 198
2/8 and is from 1974.
