Pennsylvania Hunter Takes 43 Point Buck
In the record books there are typicals, non-typicals, and then less common freaks of nature. In other words non-typical, non-typicals. It appears that Steve McCartney in PA has taken one of these freaks on the opening day of rifle season. The buck doesn't appear to be particularly tall or wide, however it has numerous points throughout its rack.
Details are kind of schetchy right now, but ThePittshburghChannel.com has a brief story, video, and slide show up about Steve, the buck, and the hunt. Visit the link to check out more detailed photos.
“At first, I was watching an 8-point kind of mess around my stand and I never had a really good shot on him and he kind of got spooked away,” McCartney told Channel 4 Action News’ Ari Hait. “Then [the 43 point buck] came stumbling out behind him. Thank God I didn’t take the first shot because I would’ve regretted it.”
