No Point Hunting Buffalo County Any More

That super-deer has been taken.

While declining to reveal the score of Decker's buck, Dodge said it would likely be "around 200 inches." The rack has several tines longer than 13 inches, he said.

According to the Pope and Young Club, the Chatfield, Minn.-based conservation organization that serves as official record keeper of trophy game animals taken with archery equipment, the world-record white-tail deer scored 204 4/8 . The deer was shot by Mel Johnson in Peoria County, Ill., in 1965.

What makes this even more surprising is that the deer is only about 3 years old.
