Another possible state-record buck taken

A massive St. Landry Parish buck dubbed "The Ghost" had never been seen by a hunter during daylight hours until Friday, Jan. 12.

And Darrin Dawes didn't waste the opportunity when he spotted the mainframe 12-point that could be a state record typical buck.

A biologist and taxidermist grossed the deer out at 190 5/8 non-typical, with a typical greenscore of between 184 and 185 — in line with the current state-record typical buck that measured 184 6/8 inches.
