Ohio Muzzleloader Hunter Shoots Buck with 35-Inch Main Beam

HIGHLAND COUNTY, Ohio -- On November 30, 2009, the opening day of Ohio gun season, 39-year-old software developer Brian Stephens dropped an 18-point buck at 80 yards with his .50 caliber T/C muzzleloader that will likely shatter the Buckeye State’s nontypical muzzleloader record and will almost certainly set the new mark for whitetail beam length.

Stephens took the buck on a 180-acre family farm. Two official B&C and Buckmasters measurers green-scored the buck with these dimensions:

Left G2: 18 inches

My buddy emailed me a bunch of pictures of this buck and the story that goes along with it. Good story, great buck.
