Detroit Lakes resident Ryan Derstine bagged his biggest buck of the firearm deer season, and in his entire life of hunting, last Sunday.


And it was a heck of a shot that took the 8-point buck down.

Derstine said that one of his uncles thought it was a 425-yard shot, after pacing the distance off.

The buck was shot on land owned by his uncle, Lonnie Perrine, located between Frazee and Perham.

Getting the big one was Derstine's aim this season.
