Default (World?) Record 8pt Buck POACHED in Minnesota...

This has been making the rounds in our state. I'm not sure what the world record is for an 8pt. Some people have been saying this would be it if taken legally. What a shame. Forgive me if this has already been posted on this site. I couldn't find it on the boards.

I know. Some additional information, an article from the Minneapolis paper with an unnamed hunter who hunted the buck for several years legally.

What I will never figure out is how people can be so ignorant. The least he could have done was bought tags for his girlfriend or wife, mom and grandmother and he'd have had four tags!!! Problem solved. Of course that's illegal too but you can't throw a brick around here without hitting someone who does that. And they get away with it because the DNR is hard pressed to catch anyone in the act. All of those people are legally "party" hunting with grandma.

If the 185" score is net, it would be right up there with the biggest 8 pointers in either record book. It is a PIG regardless!

it is really too bad such a great animal is taken illegally. i feel bad for anyone who had hunted the buck legally just for this a hole to poach him

i hope they lock him up for years and never let him hunt again with a huge fine. make an example out of him. its because of people like that who give the rest of us who abide by the law, a bad name.

I'm no expert on scoring so I have no idea if they think we're stupid. I do know, though, that this buck was huge and doubt anyone could show any pic period of a bigger 8 point rack. Again, a bigger 8 point rack, not just a bigger rack but an 8 point rack.

Here's another story with a picture that gives a better perspective of the rack.

Perhaps I need another view of the rack. I wont complain about looking at multiple pictures of a nice rack.
