Minnesota Frozen Bucks

received in email, hadn't seen it posted here yet.
Amazing and sad at same time.

subject: Minnesota Frozen Bucks

Story Below.
I was fortunate enough to see these bucks shortly after they
were found on November 16 near Henning, MN. Our deer shack is
located about a mile from the swamp where the bucks were found.

Here's the story... the guy that found them had left his stand Sunday
morning andwas walking back to their shack when he noticed a tine
sticking out ofthe 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 theshack 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 what
I've 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 beforebeing discovered. Because of this, the capes had begun to
deteriorateand 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 thebig guy!
Hope you enjoy the pictures. A truly once in a lifetimeopportunity.

That is a great story!! Thanks for the post. It is sad that those 2 heck-of-a-bucks died that way. I wish I could bust me one like that. I hunt south Texas, so not many frozen swamps to deal with. Gutpile

Hopefully, they'll get two nice capes and have them bad boys mounted like that.
