Jason Sanders’ World Record 9 Pointer

Thu, December 01, 2011



The lucky hunter, Jason Sanders, killed the buck in central Illinois on December 1st, 2011,opening day of the second firearm season with his trusty Mossberg 500-12 gauge rifled barrel, open sights. He had trail cam pictures of the deer from the summer and saw the buck the first gun season, but didn’t like the shot and let him go by.

He did a lot of thinking while waiting for the second gun season to arrive, but when it did, he made it count.

The main beams are 30 inches and 32 inches. That puts him tied for fifth all time in the Boone and Crockett Club records for longest beam, and none of those are 8-pointers. Inside spread is 22 3/8 inches, G2’s are 14 inches and 16 inches and G3’s are both right at 12 inches.

His typical 8-point frame grosses 192 3/8 inches, and he nets 184 7/8 inches as an 8 point after side-to-side deductions.

Subtract the 1 6/8” sticker and you’ve got a 4X4 buck still netting 183 1/8 inches typical!

So how’s that compare?

Well the BnC records show the world record 8 pointer, a true 4X4, is a tie: a buck from Michigan and one from South Dakota that both net 180 3/8 inches.

The world record 9 Point, a 4X5 from Alberta, nets 182 5/8 inches. I’m not sure if it’s an 8-point with a sticker like this one, or a true typical 9 point. This one is bigger, and in all likelihood, bigger than the 8 point frame of the 4X4.
