James Rath Buck
Score: 231 2/8"
Location: Minnesota (Renville Co.)
Item #: 9159
The Rath family had hunted whitetails together on their south central Minnesota farmland for years. When the gun season of 1977 came around, they were at it again. This time there were high hopes -- a big buck had been spotted occasionally throughout the summer. A family deer drive flushed the monster buck out and lucky Jim had only a 20 yard shot. It took only one slug to bring the animal down. A massive typical frame gives this buck a very symmetrical look for a non-typical rack. Truly a legend.
