Awesome deer! I hunt in that area (between Port Allegheny and Smethport) and am curious if it was taken on public or private land?

Although the wildlife history of the era is sketchy, at least one fact can be judged sure – that in 1830, 17-year old Arthur Young shot a giant whitetail buck that is now and will surely forever be the oldest entry in the Boone and Crockett Club record book. And not just for whitetails, but for every species on the continent.
In 1965, scoring officials finally put a tape measure on the antlers. Young’s typical 12-point tallied 175 4/8 inches. The rack and its history were saved from obscurity after 135 years. Today it ranks as the number ten buck ever recorded in Pennsylvania
