A public-land Michigan buck hit the ground on the first day of rifle season, and it’s a big one. 

In Michigan, a state where giant bucks are rare, Eric Hysell of Saranac downed a 19-point public-land whitetail. Officials haven’t officially scored the deer yet, but it’s safe to say it’ll do well.

Hysell the buck at 8:10 a.m. the Wednesday before Thanksgiving with his .30-378 rifle at an incredible distance of 193 yards in the Manistee National Forest in Mason County.

The buck boasts giant main beams and even contains a kicker coming off of the G2 tine, as well as a gnarly drop tine. This is truly the buck of a lifetime.
