Boone & Crockett Close to Crowning New World Record Pronghorn
November 06, 2012
After nearly a year's wait, Stan S. Jaksick of Nevada has finally gotten the news of a lifetime.
That's because Jaksick's pronghorn entry to Boone & Crockett, killed in 2011, was finally accepted with an official score of 95-6/8 points — 6/8-inch larger than the previous world record holder. While the massive buck still has to be evaluated by a B&C panel, the organization did approve the official entry score, which is good news for Jaksick.
Currently two pronghorn bucks are tied for the world record at 95 inches — David Meyer's 2002 Arizona buck and Dylan Woods' 2000 buck from the same state. While Nevada has three top-20 B&C pronghorn, including the potential new world record, Arizona still reigns supreme with 11 bucks on that list.
