Stay on Target

KY Giant

Fri, September 19, 2014

I first saw this buck on Chris Brackett’s facebook page.  There was no hunter shown in the picture, just a few words about this being a Western Kentucky buck.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out a few hours later that one of my archery friends was the proud hunter.  Justin Mooney shot this magnificent animal in Webster County Kentucky.  That is about 30-40 miles southeast of Shawneetown, IL.  The buck appears to have a typical 14 point frame, and Justin told me it has 41 inches of abnormal growth.  The deer was rough scored in the 230’s (gross).  From what I can see, it looks every bit that big. 

Congrats Justin!


Holy Toledo!  Thats amazing. Tell you buddy congrats.  Illinois used to produce a few bucks like.  The bastards in the DNR put a stop to that through.

The title of the column is Stay on Target.  This post is about a fellow hunter’s success.  Keep it that way!

Congratulations on a fine harvest and a beautiful baby, sir!

Nice buck! Congrats to the hunter! That’s even bigger that Marc Anthony’s massive 182” 6x6 typical he killed in KY in 2009!

What is the bump on its ear, another point?  The freak might even have ear tines.
