Story Behind the Buck: Deer of a Lifetime - 5
Even though 11-year-old Coe Klauer brought in one of the best bucks to the Illinois Deer and Turkey Expo last weekend, a lot of people felt bad for him - or at least they said they did.
They said they felt sorry for the kid because he had shot his "buck of a lifetime" at age 11. Now, any buck he shoots would likely be smaller (his buck netted 163 2/8). What does he have to hunt for?
Then again, maybe there is something to the "buck of a lifetime" statement. But if there is, I don't think you measure it in inches.
Share your 2013/2014 trophy buck stories and photos with us in our annual Deer of the Year contest. You'll have the chance to have your deer featured on the cover of our August issue.
