Could this 200-class 17-pointer shot Nov. 19 near Brainard set the Nebraska state record for a typical whitetail rack? It may all depend on the G-3s.
Kevin Petrzilka and his two sons, Dillon, 20, and Mason, 17, had to assemble quickly and literally chase down this monster buck of a lifetime. Mason was the first to spot the buck and took a shot that went wide. His gun jammed, forcing him to call his father and brother for reinforcements. After Kevin downed the buck, the attention and the measuring tapes came out, indicating Kevin’s trophy could be a new typical record for the Cornhusker state, if those G3s are typical, that is.
