Big Bucks Corner

Kyle Dunn’s 13-pointer

By KYLE DUNN

I was in my ground blind in Lake County on October 16 when I shot this big 13-point buck. It was a cool morning. There was no activity until about 7 a.m. 

Three bucks came out smaller ones.then I heard grunting and bleating behind them. Then two does came running out and were looking back. I knew there was a big boy coming but not this big. He walked out chasing the does around.

I drew back at 20 yards. No shot. I drew my bow back down and he saw me!

I just closed my eyes and waited for him to follow them does. Sure enough he did. He stopped again at 15-20 yards and I got a good shot on him, he went about 40 yards he weighed 230 field dressed, grossed out at 178 inches.

I was shaking for at least 6 hours. Biggest buck I’ve ever seen or shot.
