Kentucky Bow Hunter Scores 27 Points and 230 1/8" Non-Typical White Tail

Justin Mooney, of Dixon, Kentucky has had a great year for personal reasons and bow hunting, as he because a father of a new daughter, took first place in a state tournament of the Archery Shooters Association, and shot the largest buck of his life using a bow.

The monster weighed in at over 200 lbs., and scored 27 points and 230 1/8".  For the county he took the deer in, he shattered the previous record of 167 1/8, as listed by Pope and Young, and also the 204" ranked by Boone and Crockett for a non-typical. It has to be confirmed, but the buck may also be the No. 3 ranked non-typical ever taken in Kentucky.

Using trail cam photos, Mooney found the deer and tried to project his most likely patterns.
“This hunt was on probably the smallest piece of property I hunt, but that’s usually how it is,” Mooney said. “The deer is never where you think he’s supposed to be.”

It only took him forty minutes of hunting to spot and take down the buck.
