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.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.
