15-Pointer Poached From Ohio Park

From the Toledo Blade:

Two Toledo men have been charged . . . in connection with the poaching last month of a well-recognized white-tailed deer in Side Cut Metropark.

The deer - a large-antlered, 15-point buck known to some Side Cut fans as Big Boy and to others as Stickers, probably was killed in the early hours of Oct. 9, according to Steve Thomson, a wildlife investigator for Ohio Wildlife District 2.

"I've had more people call me about this particular deer that any I have worked on," the investigator said. He added that a state wildlife biologist aged the deer at 8 1/2 to 9 1/2 years old. . . .



I suppose somebody was either hungry or greedy.


That person should be in real trouble because they took away a fair chance for a home hunter. They also took something away ilegally from people who have watched this big buck grow. I really can't believe this article.


I cant believe that people do things like this....they are definitely not hunters...they are scum....hey guys why dont you hunt like the rest of us legally and in places where there is fair hunting involved.

I will be watching to see what the outcome is for these two individuals. This is a shame that anyone would kill a human habituated deer within the confines of a park where people come to observe and enjoy nature. The laziness and greed of these two men is abhorrent.
