It’s the kind of beastly buck that all whitetail hunters dream about. For a hunter from Maple Grove, Minnesota, it’s now a buck that will give him nightmares.
As reported by law enforcement officer Kyle Larson from Maple Grove, “This 19-pointer was hit by a car.” The incident occurred just 2 nights ago. It’s a fair assumption that the rut is to blame for this tremendous buck’s unfortunate peril. He was likely searching for a hot doe when he wandered into traffic to meet his high-speed fate.
“A bow hunter called me this morning … almost in tears,” Larson explained. “He had heard about it being hit.” According to Larson, the hunter went on to note that he’d been pursuing the deer for 3 years, and that it sported 14 points last year.
The buck hasn’t been officially scored, but word on the street is that it will gross in the neighborhood of 230 inches. What do you think? Share your comments below.
