This deer was pursued by Al Dawson for 5 years when he invited his friend, Del Austin, to join him. But it was Del that made the successful shot, after being in stand for only 45 minutes, with a recurve bow on that day in 1962. It was the world record for almost 40 years. Notice the unique drop tines next to its face and the sticker points on its brow tines. It has 95 2/8" of abnormal points. It's nickname of "Old Mossy Horns" came from his shedding velvet hanging down like moss from his rack.
