It’s official: Nevada bowhunter Frank Cheeney now holds the world record for largest typical mule deer ever taken with a bow. Cheeney shot the monster buck on Aug. 13, 2016 while hunting with his son, Aaron, in southeastern Nevada. Luck was on his side as they stalked through the dusty sagebrush, trying to edge closer to a group of bucks bedded down. While Cheeney waited for a shot, the largest in the bunch stood, making this hunt one for the record books.

“As luck would have it, the breeze was blowing straight in my face as I headed towards the bucks,” said Cheeney in a press release. “They seemed oblivious to my presence. As fate would have it, the biggest buck stood up from his bed. I drew my bow and with the deer in my sights I let the arrow fly.”

That buck was measured during the Pope And Young Club’s (P&Y) 30th Biennial Convention by two separate panels consisting of qualified measurers as well as a Boone & Crockett representative. Cheeney’s buck scored 205 6/8", topping the previous typical mule deer world record at 205 0/8".

“This was the first time the Pope and Young Club has used a Special Panel for verification of a potential World Record trophy,” said Ed Fanchin, P&Y Records Chairman, in a press release. “The score was authenticated and this tremendous mule deer was declared the new Pope and Young Club World Record typical mule deer. Congratulations to Frank Cheeney and to the Nevada Department of Wildlife for using successful wildlife management practices. It’s great to know...
