It’s Official, Fort Sill Sergeant Owns State Deer Archery Record
While deer season has come and gone in Oklahoma, one local hunter, Sgt. Travis Ocker, has just been confirmed to have the state record for largest archery non-typical deer harvest... and man, it is massive.
If you're not familiar, hunters 'score' their quarry using very specific measurements of a bucks rack. They include two different widths, overall height, and is further broken down into smaller detail measurements of each point.
Typically, in the state of Oklahoma, most hunters (+/- 90% including children) will release that arrow on considerably smaller, younger animals, measuring well below anything to brag about. What we consider a 'monster buck' in Oklahoma will score somewhere between 170 and 190 inches. Travis' non-typical, 28-point white tail scored an insane 245 2/8 inches overall! It's definitely something you'd be proud to hang on a wall.
