Some gall, who in their proper mind wouldn’t let this buck pass, to grow into something respectable? ;)

Well now....what we got here, fella's, is a.....

......genuine, 170-class, B&C-qualifying 8-point! :eek:

I imagine most of you guys realize that B&C-class typical 8-points are as rare as hen's teeth, right?

Stanley, what's the full story on that buck?

Did you shoot him?

Bow or gun-kill??

What did he actually score (gross or net)??

Think this one would make it? This deer was poached in Western NY and I think it's now hanging in one of the DEC field offices.

Big deer for sure, but I'm not sure it will net over 170. Who knows, pictures are deceiving. Could net 140, could net 175. Anyone know for sure what the story is on this great buck?

The story as I heard it.

I only wish I would have taken that deer. The story goes like this: the buck was found dead by some shot gun hunters during the December 2004 season, actually by the guy that is holding the buck. The guy took the head home, and used a deer tag from one of the hunters in their party. Party hunting is legal in Iowa, so they thought every thing was proper. DNR got wind of the buck, and how the hunters found it. Mostly because of the size of the rack, and the notoriety it received. In Iowa, you can’t move a deer until it’s tagged period. The DNR confiscated the rack because of the technicality and are going to auction it off. That hunter lost a chunk of change, lesson learned. I don’t know what the value of a Booner 8 point would be, but I would imagine a pretty penny or two. The buck was found with in 3 miles from where I live!! I never did hear an official score; I'll dig around and if I find out a score I'll post it. Some guys have all the luck, well for a little while anyway.

Very nice looking deer, the only way we get them that size in NE is if we hand feed them behind private fences. :wink:

I'm not positive but the story as I heard it is that it was the second buck the kid took during archery (allowed one in NY) and someone blew him in. My friend did the mount for the DEC at cost. I think the guy in the picture is with the DEC, not the "hunter/poacher"
