Well, by now you know how these things go. They come in to my email box and I try to authenticate them and most of the time I can’t. However, the pictures are worth looking at even if the story is not accurate. Here’s what I received. You make the call.
This came to me from reader “Jim”.
Here are some early photos of a great deer taken during the youth hunt this year. This buck green scores 203 Typical, NET, not gross. If so, this would place this buck in the top Three typical all time in Wisconsin , and that includes the great Jordan Buck at 207 that was world record for decades. These pictures were taken in front of the Cabala’s store in Prairie du Chien. The hunter shown in the Picture a 15 year old Williams’s boy from Millville , WI the deer was shot between Millville and Woodman the buck was shot with a rifle during the youth Hunt in early October. This deer has 16 inch tines. The manager at Cabelas Offered him $25,000 on the spot the day the pictures were taken. Cabela’s offer included making a replica set of antlers that look identical to the originals and the hunter would be able to keep the cape. The boy and his father turned down that offer. The manager then called the Cabelas headquarters in Nebraska and immediately got permission to offer the boy $61,000 for the rack. He still said no. Writers and photographers from various deer magazines descended on Wisconsin to see the deer so I’m sure you will see more about this buck in the upcoming days and Woodman. The buck was shot with a rifle during the youth hunt in early October.
