WORTH COUNTY, GA (NBC) -- A hunter in Worth County, Georgia ran across something really unique, a 22-point buck.

The hunter says he got lucky.
 
He was off work due to surgery -- and that was the only reason he could hunt that day.
 
The Georgia state biologist in nearby Tifton, Georgia will give the deer a green score to determine if it is among the largest whitetail deer ever recorded in the state.
