Thanks! It's from the Blue Hills area near Rice Lake, WI. He should be on my wall by late May/early June. The best part about it is that I got the mount for free! I took it to Upland Taxidermy in Hayward because they were running a contest--the biggest buck (# of points + inside spread) gets a free mount. They also do great work there.
The buck was hit high by a bow hunter (at very close range) and was on its death bed when I shot it. The blood was water thin, the liver was 4x the normal size, and all of the vitals had large black spots on them. It looked like the arrow caught the top of a lung, but it appeard that happened as long as a month before I shot it. Despite its poor health, it still dressed at 206 lbs. and was chasing a doe!

That's great buck Cleo! I'd put that hog on my wall in a heartbeat. Interesting story too. They are incredibly hardy creatures. I'm glad you were able to harvest it before it died.

Were the internal organs really smelly? I'd have thought if the buck had been shot as much as a month earlier it would have been really gangrenous.

Sam-
When I found him, I figured I gut shot him because of the smell. Thought I was going to lose my cookies. I was happy to see I hit him in the heart and a lung.

Actually, it was closer to Rice Lake. I am originally from Cameron, live in Superior, and have a brother living in Hayward. He did some advertising for the taxidermist, so that is how I found out about the contest and the quality of the guy's work.

We have a theory that for every big buck you see, there are two that you never see unless you are very lucky. It is a theory we believe more and more with each season!

I’ve hunted the Blue Hills for almost 20 years now. I’ve never seen a buck that big alive over there. He’s a beauty. If you drove him up to Hayward can I assume you took him in the Birchwood area?

    • the contractor put a piece of trim that drops down into the gutter. So that style will not work. I had them on before I did the metal roof and they worked well.

    • Everything seems to be OK here.
    • I ordered a Somerset  grape vine last spring. Mainly because it is the only seedless grape that is supposed to be hardy enough to grow here. I took it off the wire and laid it down and covered it up with dirt to keep it from winter killing. It came through fine. Just put it back on the trellis yesterday.
