Remember your first hunt? Chances are you were nervous and had no idea what you were doing. Maybe you ended up having a shot at a decent sized doe, or you may have even taken down a buck with a few points. Chances are you didn’t spot a monster like this 11-year-old from Springfield, Missouri, much less kill one.

Shot by Jenna Perryman and weighing in at 200-pounds, this 15-point, 178 inch typical whitetail is a buck even the most seasoned buck hunter would get excited over.

Jenna almost missed her chance at this monster buck. Her and her father, David, had been hunting most of the day, when towards the end they spotted a doe from 50 yards out. Jenna lined up her shot and got ready to fire, but her dad stopped her when he noticed a buck behind the doe.

“It didn’t look as big when it was that far away,” Jenna told the Springfield News-Leader, “but then when I saw it, I was like, ‘Whoa! Did I do that?'”

There’s a good chance Jenna’s buck will make it into the Boone & Crockett Club record book. That’s insanely impressive for anyone, much less a first time hunter, because only 474 of the millions of tagged deer over the years have made it in the book.
