The Alabama Whitetail Record Books have been around for a while now and we found it interesting that not many people in our area know where the state record deer was harvested (typical). The “Joe Gandy Buck” was harvested on January 31, 1993 on a farm south of Faunsdale and north of Thomaston in Marengo County. This record still holds today and is not likely to be broken anytime soon. Most people would have assumed the deer would have been harvested during the soybean days of the 70′s and 80′s but not so. The “Joe Gandy Buck”, which scored 213 6/8 was harvested on a working cattle farm several years out of row crop farming. Ask a deer hunting friend where the state record whitetail was harvested and see if they say Marengo County.
