Bruce Delaney, Kentucky

Bruce Delaney, Kentucky

After missing this 165 2/8-inch 14-pointer on opening morning of muzzleloader season in Christian County, Kentucky, Hopkinsville's Bruce Delaney decided to hunt the stand again that afternoon. The buck obliged Bruce by returning to the scene, and this time the shot was true. The massive drop-tined deer, which dressed out at 200 pounds, was the first whitetail Bruce had taken with a blackpowder firearm.
