Check Out This Virginia Non-Typical Stud Buck!

Nothing like a great buck on opening day to get the season off to a good start, and Ed Muse of Virginia may be hard-pressed to top his great non-typical whitetail.

Ed Muse with his giant Virginia buck taken Oct. 6.

Veteran outdoor writer Mark Taylor, reporting the story at, said Muse arrowed this fine whitetail Oct. 6 while hunting a 200-acre farm in Amherst County. Muse had trail cam photos of the deer taken in August, but wasn’t completely certain about its size.

“I knew the deer was big,” Muse said. “I just didn’t realize how big.”

Turns out it has at least 21 points and will score between 184 and 194 gross. That’s a rough score so it could be higher.

Great buck! Check out Taylor’s full story here at
