Tennessee teen kills 'monster' 27-point buck
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) -- A Tennessee teenager killed a "monster" 27-point buck in Benton County in late December.
13-year-old Bo Ezell woke up on Dec. 28 wanting to go squirrel-hunting, but had a change of plans when a friend called and reportedly asked him to shoot a buck spotted behind her house.
Bo, not expecting to see the buck, took his time getting ready before heading over to his friend's house. According to Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA), Bo and the friend noticed the buck that "looked like it had a big bush on its head" down near the creek.
TWRA said the giant buck looked directly at the teen as he fired shots.
“I got rattled and just started shaking,” Bo told TWRA. He ended up hitting the deer three times in what he calls a "crazy hunt."
The buck has 27 scorable points and has been green rough gross scored of 213 7/8 and 6.5 years old, according to TWRA.
