Everyone knows that Pennsylvania has the most hunters in any state per square mile. What you probably haven’t heard, a NEW state record typical may have just fallen!
Keystone state hunter, Barry Kern, dropped what could be the largest typical buck taken in state history just a few days ago while in Washington, county. The incredible 14-point buck is reported to have a green gross score of 189 inches, netting about 174! Even more impressive, the buck is estimated to only be about 3 ½ years old! It will have to wait the 60 day drying period required by both the Pope and Young, and Boone and Crockett scoring systems before it will be official however, but sources say it could be a new record.
The staff here at Bowhunting.Com would like to congratulate hunter, Barry Kern, on the taking of such a rare and unique whitetail buck. Whether or not it takes the top seed in PA’s hunting book, it is certainly a buck to be proud of! Congrats again Barry!
