Missouri: Picked-Up Rack Scores 270-Plus!
April 2, 2013

From the Missouri Dept. of Conservation:

On the evening of Wednesday, March 13, an antler shed hunter discovered a large, near-record set of non-typical antlers while searching the August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area in St. Charles.

Preliminary reports say the rack has 37 points and scores in the 270s. The buck was likely 5 ½ to 6 1/2. It will be one of the top 5 NT bucks ever grown in Missouri.

Nobody knows for sure what killed the buck last summer/fall, but it’s safe to assume he was another victim of the big EHD outbreak of 2012.

BTW, the shed hunter gets to keep the rack that he found on state land, but a paper he was issued states he cannot sell it for profit.

August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area in St. Charles is an awesome area to hunt and they only give out a very few tags for this piece of public property. It's right next to the Missouri River and contains lots of ag fields so it's no wonder this buck grew so big. My buddy shot a 165" 8 off of this same place about 3 years ago..I would love to get drawn for Busch Conservation area one day.

Hey Matt in response to what u said the discover of the world record found the deer during deer season and was unable to tag it as his own cause he had already filled his tag. So the conservation agent he called to report the deer picked it up and the rest is history.

THat thing is sweet. If he found that in South Dakota it would get confiscated by the state Game and Fish. Supposedly the law to deter poaching. But it sounds awefully similar to the mentality behind taking away law-abiding citizen's guns to avoid mass shootings! Come on SD Game and Fish Commission!!!!!! But besides that: Great find!!

What a beast! So cool. It's good he gets to keep the rack at least. I've heard that wasn't the case with the nt record that was picked up (also Missouri). Apparently, the worden/dnr/whoever made the discoverer give him the rack...and then turned around and started making money off it as his own find. But, that's just what I've heard.

EHD took a lot of deer last year from many states.

I cannot imagine walking up on that trophy, let alone seeing it live on the hoof with a bow in my hand...I'd have been shaking like a dog crapping a peach seed!
