They were found on November 16 near Henning , MN .
Here's the story... the guy that found them had left his
stand Sunday morning and was walking back to their shack when he
noticed a tine sticking out of the swamp grass just off the side of a
four wheeler trail. He walked over to check it out and
found the two bucks frozen in the swamp ice with only about one foot of each deer's side and about 10 inches of the tines above the
ice. After getting
help from some hunting partners, they managed to chop the deer
out of the ice and get them loaded onto a flatbed trailer. The deer
were then brought
back to the shack and the word started to spread. The "smaller"
of the two was a massive 8 pointer that green scored an estimated 150+
inches and the "larger" monster was a true swamp buck with what was
thought to be 18 scorable points and a green score of 190+ inches. From
heard since these photos were taken, the two bucks are gaining
statewide attention and the larger buck actually has 23 scorable points.
It is thought
that the bucks had been dead for 2 weeks before being
discovered. Because of this, the capes had begun to deteriorate and
were not capable of producing a mountable cape. However, new capes
have been supplied and the bucks are in the process of being mounted
locked together in battle. The twine on the antlers was to prevent the
bucks from coming unlocked when the heads were removed. Also, check
out the cup on the tip of the main beam on the big guy!
