200-inch Mississippi buck arrowed
Calhoun County monster deer likely to be third-ranked non-typical bow buck in Magnolia Records.
Mississippi's Shane Ragon was just looking to stick a hog when he arrowed this 200-inch buck that likely will be the third-largest bow buck in the state, according to the Magnolia Records.
Heck, he was on both knees when he made the shot.
“I am not ashamed to tell you that I got very emotional when I grabbed those antlers and lifted them up and saw what I had done,” the 40-year-old Ragon said. “I cried. I laughed. I cried again. And I laughed again.
“And I prayed, too, thanking the Lord for giving me the opportunity to take such a remarkable animal”
Remarkable? You bet.
“It was greenscored at 203 5/8 inches, gross,” the Calhoun City hunter said. “It is a 7x7 main frame with 12 sticker points that measure 25 inches non-typical. It doesn’t have a lot of mass — it’s less than 16 inches inside spread — but, boy, it makes up for it with those points.”
Even if the score drops 8 inches after the 60-day drying period for an official score, the buck will become the third largest non-typical buck ever killed in Mississippi, according to the Magnolia Records.
