WOODBURY, Minn. (AP) - A 38-year-old mother of two has bagged one of the biggest bucks ever killed with a bow and arrow.

Deb Luzinski of Woodbury shot the 24-point buck on Friday at Bald Eagle-Otter Lakes Regional Park in White Bear Township. Once a mandatory 60-day drying period has passed, her buck could rank among the top three nonsymmetrical - or nontypical - white-tailed deer ever killed with a bow and arrow, according to the Minnesota Record Book.

And, Luzinski could hold the top spot for a nonsymmetrical deer killed by a female bowhunter in Minnesota.

"I'm not a trophy hunter, so to speak; I firmly believe in hunting as a part of deer management," she said. "My intent that night was to shoot a doe, but this buck was unfathomable."

Luzinski is a landscaper who has been archery hunting for 15 years. She is a member of the Metro Bowhunters Resource Base, which helps control deer populations.

Hunting is "a part of my being," she said, "a part of who I am."

The 24-pointer was 3½ years old and weighed about 190 pounds - relatively small and young considering his antler size, Luzinski said.

The antlers have been measured using the Boone and Crockett scoring method, which determines antler size based on number of points, thickness and width of the antlers, with deductions for imperfections. Luzinski's buck was 220 inches, before the mandatory drying period.

The biggest nontypical whitetail killed by archery measures 223 4/8 inches. The No. 2 archery deer measures 222 5/8 inches. The No. 3 deer measures 217 5/8 inches, so it is possible Luzinski's deer would claim that spot, according to the record book.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
