Yeah in the e-mail I got it said from WI... I am always a bit skeptical on place of kill of these big deer. I hope to find more about it from some other folks. Havent heard any buzz in WI besides the e-mail. But in regards to the photos, you can pretty much tell it is the same deer.

Must be a new Amish group.Special clothes and beards optional.You always have to be a little wary of internet pics.Sometimes things are not as they seem to be.

Still a big deer.I thought just maybe that was Cooters buck. wink.gif

How was this buck taken,archery or special gun season? If this is a archery buck,then it must be a record of some sort.

i thought amish were not allowed to take any sort of picture or look at mirrors due to the reflection or a picture being something bad ...something to do with religion i believe ill research it and post a bit

I still think its not. Look at the left antler. Where is that G2 point with all the junk and the palmation in pic #2? Also, where is the point that runs basically parallel to the main beam? Plus the overall shape of the rack is different. The top pic the beams come towards each other where the bottom rack they just keep spreading...

I think they are great pics but also think it is differant deer. The drop tine seems more prominent on the bottom pic and the ends of the main beams look like they curve up in the second pic and curve forward in the other pic if that makes sense.

Great deer, but I'd have to agree with LawDog and say 2 different deer. The top has definite arching on the overall antler structure, where the bottom antlers come more straight out.

I'd be willing to throw the red challenge flag due to the wizards of Photoshop and how the pictures seem obviously different to me, and the Amish story is a little off base. Not that they couldn't, but that they'd probably keep it to themselves and not brag. Interesting question; do they have to register their deer as we do? Also, there are a lot of non-typical Amish folk in the background of the bottom pic. I could be wrong, though.

Remember the internet hype on that monster Bass a few months ago? True fish, but way different stories at first. These could be true deer, but I'd need a validated story that was independently checked, not an email with a couple of pictures. They do get the blood pumping, though.

That do be a beast. I have a possible scenerio for the non-Amish looking guy. The Amish hunter brought it in to register and refused to have his own picture taken but allowed someone else to hold up the deer,s head for a photo to be taken. Sound possible??

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.

      The four I use are pretty shallow for at least the first hundred yards, but I've never damaged my boat or prop. Just gotta take it slow and trim the motor up.    I use Isle, Cove, Garrison, and the one near the casino, Shaboshkung or whatever.

      great fish!

      Greetings fishermen and women! Its great being back in the swing of things and better yet in the boat! Both the MN and Ontario season is now open and fishing has been great! Staffers here at Flag Island Resort have been busy getting ready for the upcoming summer months with some deep cleaning, window washing, grounds work and remodeling!   On the Minnesota side anglers have been catching nice saugers, walleyes and perch. Soon the crappies should be finding their way into the shallows around Angle Inlet and other small creeks and the walleyes have spawned out over the past couple of weeks. With the warmer temps that started out last week anglers were finding fish in shallower water between 5-17 feet now, with the cooler temps, rain and winds most of the fish have been pushed deeper into the 16-26 foot range. Points and reefs close to large land masses adjacent to sand and rubble have been hot locations. Anglers have found fish near Soldier’s, Little Oak, Oak Island and NW Point. The water surface temp has been in that 50-55 degree range. Right now it seems like everything is working from ¼ to 3/8 jigs to slow trolling with raps in the shallows as well as trolling spinners keeping on the move at 0.9 mph.   Over in Ontario, the walleye, sauger, crappie, perch and pike have been hungry. Perch and crappie should be spawning soon. Crappies are being caught around the 20 foot mark . Sandy bays and points have been best for the walleye and crappie bite while the perch are still caught in the rocks. Many pike have been caught in areas with current. There have been reports of a lot of smallmouth mixed in with the walleyes.  Jigging with a ¼-3/8 ounce jig has been the ticket and the water temp has been around 49-52 degrees.   We hope to see you up here soon! Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
