A huge whitetail buck featured in a video that was posted on the Field and Stream Web site may have been shot in Wisconsin.
According to a Wisconsin Journal Sentinel article, Eau Claire bowhunter Bob Decker shot an eight-point whitetail that a taxidermist swears is the same animal. Some of the tines measure 13 inches and it could easily score 200.
"It's too early to say if it's a record, but it's a deer of a lifetime," Jack Dodge, owner of Dodge's Taxidermy, told the Journal Sentinel. "And if it's not a record, it's certainly the most popular buck of the year."
The deer was shot in Buffalo County, the same county that the big deer featured in Field and Stream was photographed. According to the article, Dodge is just an average Joe, a paper mill worker who got lucky and shot the massive buck at 10 yards from his tree stand.
