Nice Kansas 13-point typical buck

October 29, 2008 at 08:51 PM

Kansas bowhunter Jamie Farr shot this 13-point Geary County buck on Oct. 22.

The typical rack unofficially grossed 208 inches but is expected to net around 188 inches.

The Wichita Eagle reported that the Kansas archery state record is a 193 7/8-inch buck shot in Wabaunsee County in 2001.

“If he didn’t have those splits on the browtines, he’d net 195 and be the new state record, But those add character to him,” Farr told the Wichita Eagle. “I’ll keep hunting and hoping for something bigger and better. I realize that’s a pretty big dream.”
