Deer of the Day - Kansas Bow Boss, Matt Stark

My 2011 Kansas season went better than I could have ever imagined! The first evening on stand, this giant followed a doe in, giving me a 50-yard shot. I was able to connect with my Hoyt Carbon Element on a buck of a lifetime. The buck weighed 275 pounds on the hoof and grossed 172-7/8 inches!

Congrats on a great buck Matt!
