Oh, so they’re bagging some MONSTERS over there in Indiana now.

Dustin Huff, an Indiana hunter, harvested the biggest whitetail the state has seen in a decade, according to Wide Open Spaces

It’s still unofficial at the moment, but the 211-4/8 inch deer should hold up as the new Indiana state record, a crossbow world record, the second biggest typical whitetail buck of ALL TIME.

Only two inches short of the world record of the typical whitetail, killed by Milo Hansen in Saskatchewan in 1993.

Using a Stryker Crossbow, Huff harvested this behemoth in his hometown of Greensburg, Indiana, on a family friend’s 185-acre farm.

Huff recalled the exciting moment:

“I had no history or knowledge of the deer until I saw him about three minutes before shooting him… it was crazy.”

An official measurement from the Boone & Crockett Club was conducted on January 5, 2022, however Huff will have to wait until 2025 for the score to be confirmed and his name etched in the record books, but as of right now, it looks like he’s got himself the second biggest typical whitetail ever.

“The reaction has been unreal, people are just amazed at how much mass the deer’s antlers have. People are loving it.

I’m just still shocked about the whole thing. I mean, I never guessed anything like this would ever happen to a guy like me. I’m super thankful for it and all I got to say is God works in mysterious ways. It couldn’t have been more perfect timing.”

And believe it or not, Huff is a country music singer/songwriter as well.
