From Tulsa World:
The final evening of muzzleloader season in Oklahoma wrapped up with what likely will be one of the largest mule deer ever killed in the state — and the first killed on a ranch that is well over 100 years old.
Justin Lotspeich killed the buck Sunday night on the family ranch, which has been in operation roughly 60 miles northwest of Woodward near the Kansas border since 1903.
“I felt some buck fever, I’m not going to lie, it does set in a little bit when you get that close and put your eyes on ‘em.”
Justin says the giant was green-scored at about 200 inches, and he estimates the animal was 6½ years old. The fact that he shot this dream buck on his home ranch makes it all the sweeter. Way to go man!
