In the fall of 1958, Al Dawson missed a shot at the deer with whom he would begin a five-year game of hide and seek. The huge non-typical had a massive array of brow points and two long drop tines that reminded him of moss hanging from the rack, thus Dawson named the great buck, 'Old Mossy Horns. ' This game of cat and mouse was taking place in the Platte River bottoms near Shelton, Nebraska. A tough place to hunt, but a great place for a buck to hide. In 1962, Dawson's hope of taking the buck ran out. Late one afternoon, another hunter named Del Austin, saw a huge deer ghosting through the twilight. His arrow flew true, but until the downed deer was recovered next morning, he did not know for certain he had ended the five-year challenge. In the end, only persistence and luck would place the buck in the record books as the best non-typical whitetail by bow.
