The internet is burning up with reports of the “new” world record whitetail. The stud 12-pointer apparently tallied a gross green score of 217 5/8 which puts it as the new No. 1 for both P&Y and B&C. The hunter, Michael Gregoire of Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, shot the 240-pounder last week.

Great buck, Mike. The heartiest of congratulations. World record? We’re rooting for you, but…well, we’ve been down this road a few too many times to embrace an early score. What do you guys think it might score? Better than Milo Hanson’s buck? Or how about Mel Johnson’s long-standing P&Y record? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
