    Thad Cartwright's World Record Buck
    Taken with a Martin Pantera


    After missing the number one deer on our hit list in 2011, my hopes were low for the oncoming rut. No movement and few trail camera pictures revealed this giant was only frequenting the area in the middle of the night. Later on during gun season here in Kentucky, the deer vanished from trail cameras completely, only to return a few weeks later revealing he had been injured by a rifle hunter.

    Watching the weak deer regain weight by means of cameras throughout December, our expectations for his rack size next year was not very high. I place a camera back in the area in early July 2012. The brute was back and his midsummer rack had exceeded our expectations already. Sporting a 200”+ rack in early July , we knew this buck was one of a kind. We continued to watch and pattern this buck throughout the summer in wait of season opener. With no sighting of Bullet Proof on opening day, my hopes were still high for the next hunt.

    Just before dark I looked over my shoulder and there he stood. Slowly standing and drawing my Martin Pantera I completed this quest, all the time spent practicing and scouting came together as the arrow cleanly passed through him for a certain double lung shot. Shortly thereafter I was standing over the buck of my dreams, I was so overwhelmed with joy. This deer and the history that we had, had come to an end, and Oh it felt so Sweet! To God Be The Glory!!!

    The buck scored BTR 273 2/8.(without inside spread). 283 5/8 (with inside spread). It is a new Buckmasters velvet bow kill world record. Second biggest any bow kill ever, behind Beatty buck.

    -Thad Cartwright

    Come and see this amazing record buck in the Martin Booth at the 2013 ATA show in January.

    That is one awesome buck. Post some trail cam pics from last year/summer! I'm sure many others as well as I would love to see how he progressed!

    Very nice non Typical. Its like a Spider got up there and started webbing out antlers. Pretty impressive. Nice shot on him too. Looks like you where just behind the sweet spot with a double lung.

    Not a world record. Not sure why you titled the thread that way????? I don't think many people on here pay too much attention to Buckmasters records. However that is a monster. Congrats on killing a deer that any one of us would love to shoot.

    I almost ignored this just cause it said buckmasters in the title. I think I'd be ok with that deer.
