Girl Shoots Awesome 23-Point Texas Buck

Deer hunting enthusiasts can't ever get enough photos of awesome bucks, and here's one taken in Texas that will likely result in the largest "free-ranging non-typical ever taken by a youth hunter in Texas."

The 23-pointer, shown below, green-scored 213 2/8 gross, 203 1/8 net. It won't be until after the 60-day drying period before it will be known if it is a record or not.

What's an even more amazing part of the story, is Makayla Hay, who is pictured with her kill, saw a photo of the deer in a local newspaper before getting him in her sights on opening day of deer hunting season. He was swimming across a river.

It was a good thing Makayla passed on an 8-pointer not long before this monster came out, otherwise she would have lost her chance at shooting him.

She didn't know at the time it was the giant deer seen in the photo, and took her time to wait to get a broadside shoulder shot. The buck attempted to get to its feet and she shot it a second time to finish the kill.
