A quick update before the 2nd weekend begins: I drew a tag for the Wild River State Park hunt this year. It's a earn a buck hunt. So I had to shoot a doe before shooting any bucks. A long story short, I didn't see anything that I wanted to shoot. No single doe's and just small bucks, I was there for a big monster, and to learn more about this hunt and lay of the land.

It's a 4 day hunt, and on the morning of the last day, I was headed out after another disappointing morning of little deer activity. So I decided to take a different route out of the woods, and do a little scouting on the run. While walking, I noticed a milk can lid just sitting on the ground upright. So I headed over to take a look. While standing there wondering how the heck this got here, I then noticed this huge rack and skull next to a tree only 2 feet away!!! Wow and a few more explicatives surely popped out of my mouth. I couldn't believe it! The rack is 22" wide, has 8 points, and 8" bases. I'm not sure how he died. Most of the skeleton was gone with only a few bones left.

I called the DNR to make sure that I could legally keep it. They said that since it was in a state park I needed the park manager's approval. Which I'm happy to report I got!

So this buck will be forever know as the Milk Can Lid Buck! This kind of find is very rare, much less to be a truly impressive animal as well. This is likely to be the only trophy I will get this year, which is just fine with me!





Now to find one that's still walking around this weekend!

Great find. Its nice that its in such great condition, nothing has been chewing on it yet. Should make for a nice mount.

I'd bet that a hunter probably shot it last season and wasn't able to find it, or maybe the tough winter we had last year got it.
