Jared Oeder: 190-Inch Ohio Giant

Jared Oeder: 190-Inch Ohio Giant

Hunter: Jared Oeder

State/County: Ohio/Warren County

Score: 190 inches, green score

Gear: Horton crossbow, Rage broadheads, Moultrie trail camera



At just 19 years of age, Jared Oeder has bagged his fair share of trophy bucks — three over 150 inches — which is more than a lot of hunters will ever see in their lifetime.


Apparently it keeps getting better and better for Oeder, who killed his fourth sizeable buck on October 7. The buck was his biggest, with a green score of 190 inches and plenty of mass to go around.


On an afternoon hunt in early October, Oeder spotted three does walking in a field, and then in time two bucks trailed behind. With his dad there to film, Oeder waited until the monster buck stepped into the field, rattling branches and making his way closer to them. He readied his Horton crossbow and prepared for the shot, which came at about 40 yards.

"The special excitement to this hunt was the fact that this particular deer was new to the plot this year," Oeder said. "He was only seen a few times on our Moultrie game camera and a couple of times on other hunts."
