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.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?

      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.
