That's a dandy Hanna. Your father must be very proud. A lot of hunters wait a lifetime for a deer of this caliber.

How can you complain about antler restrictions? Will she put it in the book as a typical or non-typical?

It is nice to see bucks of that caliper in PA. I am seeing many more nice older bucks here. It is still an uphill battle for hunters to accept the doe kill amounts though. I know many guys that absolutely refuse to shoot a doe here, trying to micro manage the herd. Some buy a doe license and then don't hunt or throw a fit if you shoot a doe saying you just killed ten deer.

Fantastic BUCK!!!!!!! A great family as well, it's nice to hear how much credit she gives her parents for her success. She proved that she could put it all together when the time came and make it happen on her own!(I would have went into convulsions.) She will probably be very successful in all aspects of her life. Just goes to show what a healthy family can do, Great job Hanna!!!

Congradulations, never even seen a deer that big except in pictures. It sure is a "sweet Sixteen".

Absolutely awesome! Abundant pride shows glowing on you. Based on your write up, sounds like you are an expert. You have my personal prayers that this is not the one of a lifetime and that your passion for it lasts well into old age like it does for so many. Happy Sweet 16!!!

Great to see a family that hunts together!! Nice job, Hanna...and good teaching mom and dad!! This country could use more of that!! Don't worry about jumping up and down....any of us would have looked just as silly doing the same thing. You'll find the best part of this is the story telling that will happen years from now as you tell your kids, nices and nephews about the big buck you shot when you were their age!! Makes times spent hunting priceless!! Great Job!!

WOW! A jawdropping Booner- congratulations! I bet you didn't get much sleep the next few nights after harvesting that amazing animal! You are going to be a hunting legend-better get used to getting your picture because that will be a common occurrence soon. Hope to see you in PA game news. I live in the buckeye state but got my first deer in PA. It's great to see young individuals of either sex getting involved in our pastime-your generation is the future of hunting. I'm still trying to get my teenage daughter to go, maybe next year.

Congratulations to you and your whole family. Your story is a wonderful example for all of us. Your buck may be the biggest you ever see, certainly bigger than I've ever seen here in Keystone state, but I hope you have decades more adventures in the Field and Stream.

Great buck Hannah. I used to hunt in the same area where you took this monster, and even in the pre-antler restriction days, there were big boys around there. Who is doing the taxidermy (haha.) Joe, way to raise some great kids!

That's an amazing buck. Congrats on the sweet sixteen and the best present ever. The CWD situation in Wisconsin is making the doe population dwindle but the bucks aren't being shot because no one sees does so no one kills bucks and the bucks are getting older and bigger. This year I got a nice buck and have seen many beautiful 140 to 150 class bucks just couldn't shoot them. You are sure in the right area for killing big bucks. Congrats.

Additional Info

Hanna Harris celebrated her Sweet 16 not too long ago. On opening day of the Pennsylvania buck season, just two weeks after her birthday, she appropriately tagged this monster 16-point whitetail on her first solo hunt. Steve Hill got the story on this sweet-16 buck, which could rank in the state’s top five as either a typical or nontypical, and on Hanna’s family of hunters.
