Default Biggest buck ever killed on film?

I've watched my fair share of deer hunting shows and youtube clips. I know I've seen at least a couple of 200"+ bucks taken on TV. Anyone have any candidates?

I think I recall Jay Gregory killed a large buck, that at the time was claimed to be the largest killed on film. Seems a couple others have been that since... but then thinking again, many videos have been produced since then, so I'm thinking a lot more than just a couple now.

I believe Spook Spann has the record for the largest grossing buck killed on camera. I want to say 230+".

I also believe Pat Reeves has the largest typical killed on camera. Right at 200".

I believe these are records for fair chase. I know there were bigger fenced in deer killed on camera.

That's got to be one of my favorite hunting scenes of all time. I drew a Kansas any deer tag that year for the adjacent unit about 20 miles from where he was hunting when he shot this deer. I shot a buck about 2 weeks after Spook on opening day of rifle that grossed 218" non-typical and at the time thought he would be one of the top grossing deer of the year from KS. After seeing this video, I realize just how special hunting the mid-west really was! Spooks and one other kid who shot a giant during early rifle season beat mine, but to my knowledge mine was the number 3 that year. Kansas is a crazy place as far as whitetails go, to think that 2 deer of this caliber were taken just a few miles apart. I do worry however with the increase of non-resident tags that they will shoot out the quality of deer they are known for in the next few years, and I'm saying that as a non-resident!
