It looks like the photo of a possible world-record buck, forwarded by Dave Olzeski and posted here on Nov. 7, was more than an Internet rumor.
TrophyWatch at the Boone and Crockett Club's Web site lists it as a pending world record as of today.
Thanks to Olzeski, a Park Ridge realtor, for the heads up on the non-typical buck, which measured 319 inches. Trophy racks are scored in inches by adding and subtracing various measurements.
Here are the sketchy details from B&C.
``November 19, 2008 This buck is reported to have been taken by Roger Jarvis and is a pending B&C World's Record at 319.
The current World's Record non-typical whitetail deer was found in St. Louis County, Missouri in 1981 and was entered by the Missouri Department of Conservation on behalf of the citizens of Missouri. It scores 333-7/8 B&C.
More information as details become available.
