PARSONS, KAN. - For Parsons, Kansas resident Josh Root the hunting season has already been a successful one.

Tuesday afternoon Root and his bow took down a 23 point buck.

The Boone and Crockett Club, a national hunting organization, says Root's deer will be scored as a non-typical whitetail deer and will probably be part of the top ten in Kansas.

The 225 pound buck was donated to Erie Meat Locker for the Feed for the Needy program.

Root says it is the buck of a lifetime.

"At the point in time when he was going through the trees I knew he was bigger than 170 inches and that right there is a buck to take," Root says.  "It's a taker.  It's one that I knew I needed to make the shot happen."

The deer can not be officially scored until it's antlers have been dried.

For those of you who are hunters, Root says the buck has a 220 inch Green Gross score.

Root recently started a hunting company called Titan Productions and Design and hopes this kill will help his business live up to its name.

"A deer of this magnitude is a smart deer," Root says.  "They become nocturnal and it's just very rare to see them and if you do see them it's a moment that you, you're down to the wire, you need to make it happen or it's just going to pass you and it's just going to be a dream that you talk about to most people and I didn't want it to be a dream."
