As of right now, the deer stands as the third largest typical buck of all time in the Buckeye State. John Clay also made the record book by being fined a staggering $23,572, which is largest restitution penalty in Ohio history. He pled guilty to numerous charges, including hunting without permission and taking the deer out of season. Clay's conviction also resulted in the permanent loss of his hunting privileges in Ohio, and he could lose the right to hunt other states as well. According to Officer Gilkey, Clay had previously been busted for poaching at least 10 different times in his life. However, Clay was severely punished this time and he was even forced to hand over the record book buck to officials. Currently, the giant is proudly hanging on the wall of the Ohio State Division of Fish & Wildlife.
