It is fast approaching the century mark since this Minnesota buck was harvested in 1938, north of Duluth Minnesota off of Wolf Lake. The hunting party would commute to a neighbor's farm, and upon arrival would load up a horse drawn sleigh to travel across the lake to their dirt floored cabin. This infamous deer was harvested as he picked his way through a clear cut of timber with a smaller buck with identical drop-tines followed in toe. It was officially entered into the Boone and Crockett Club with a gross score of 233 1/8 and a net score of 225 2/8. The most striking feature of this crown of antlers is the length of the beams, that carry outstanding mass almost out to the ends. The right beam measures 29 1/8” and the left at 29 3/8”. The 1st circumference measurements are 6 2/8” and 6 1/8”, and hold steady for most of the length of the beam, ending in matching drop tines.
