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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
