Monster Ohio Whitetail Could be Top 20 Typical

Stevens' buckYou're looking at one of the biggest backyard bucks ever killed with a bow.

Ohio bowhunter Ronnie Stevens shot this 11-point typical after spotting it several days earlier in a bean field near a Columbus suburb, a kill that could find its way into the top 20 in the Boone & Crockett record books.

According to Field & Stream, Stevens first spotted the buck in a field while driving home from his kid's volleyball practice. After securing permission from nearby homes, Stevens set up trail cameras. Within a week, he had the buck of a lifetime. The buck green grossed 196 inches with a net score of 189.
