32 Point Minnesota Buck Monster

October 20, 2009
32 Point Minnesota Buck Monster - 18

 

These photos are flying across the Internet this week and if they haven’t landed on your screen yet your friends are holding out. This monster whitetail buck was bowkilled last week in central Minnesota, more specifically on the Camp Ripley military facility (www.minnesotanationalguard.org). Information is sketchy, but the buck supposedly has 32 points (all may not be scoreable) and weighed 192 pounds.

The lucky bowhunter associated with the buck is Scott Okenek who hails from the Minnesota town of South Haven. According to some notes I’ve read on Internet posts the buck has also been estimated to be 5 ½ years old and looking at the buck’s antler mass and body, I’d have to agree.

To hunt the 53,000-acre Camp Ripley facility you need to apply in a lottery-style process. According to some acquaintances I know who have hunted the facility, you need to know the land, find a funnel, set a stand up and wait. Hunting pressure is moderate and you won’t be popular if you wander around under other hunter’s stands. 

Not only does the facility serve to train America’s finest, it also is managed as a conservation property with environmental stewardship as a main goal. That said, the results could be outstanding and I’m sure Mr. Okenek would agree. This buck has it all and then some, especially in the brow tine department. What do you think this buck would score? I’d bet my truck it’s a Boone and Crockett contender. Congratulations!

I cannot even imagine what it must feel like to see a monster like that coming toward you in the woods. I'm not sure I could stay calm enough to make the shot, bow or gun.
Kudos to Scott.

Those Brow Tines could double as an extra set of Field Dressing Knives w/Gut Hooks.

I am a MN resident and am very close to Ripley, I heard about it the day after and it sounded like pushing potential state record. That is 268 5/8 if I'm correct. (if not please put the correct score here) Either way, deer of a lifetime and it just goes to show if MN had the correct management put forth by the state we would compete every year with record book bucks!!!
