Darren Augeson had spotted this big buck twice before the season, but didn't know its antlers sprouted 18-points until he reached him after downing him in a grove north of Montevideo on Nov. 9. "It was one of those that grew instead of shrunk when you got to him," he said. It's expected to gross score over 190, he said. Submitted photo

Augeson had both luck and some good, old-fashioned preseason scouting on his side when he harvested an 18-point buck north of Montevideo on Nov. 9.

"It was one of those that grew instead of shrunk when you got to him," said Augeson, who was surprised at how many tines he counted on his biggest buck ever.
