Ohio 173 4/8-Inch Buck is 12-Year-Old's Trophy

Zach BarkerKill of a lifetime? Try two lifetimes.

Ohio native Zach Barker, 12, killed this 11-point buck in Perry County in Southeast Ohio, and grandfather Ronald Gleason Sr., who accompanied the young hunter, couldn't be more proud.

"This was probably the greatest moment that I have ever experienced in all the years I've been hunting," said Gleason, the self-proclaimed "happiest grandpa in the world."
