On November 18th, Chad Cyphers (above) sent an arrow from his bow straight into the rocord books. On the way, he harvested a buck that grosses over 190 inches as a typical.

The harvest occurred on public land in McDowell County in the southern coalfields near Virginia. McDowell County is a bow-hunting only county with a one buck limit. They have not had rifle hunting since the 1970's.

The current state record was taken in 1998 by Mark Lester. That Logan County buck scored 175 6/8ths. Logan County is also a bowhunting only county with a one buck limit.

The rack will have to dry sixty days before it can officially be scored. It will have deductions but should easily eclipse the current state record typical.
