I got this via e-mail......w/ the internet, who knows if it's true!
These two bucks were locked together from fighting. The guy that found
them was going to his stand that evening,and heard a bunch of noise,so
he went to see what it was and found the bigger buck dragging the
smaller one(it was already dead). The big buck was wore out and it
would have either starved to death or been eaten alive by coyotes or dogs.
He shot the deer with his bow and got help to load them up. At the
check station,a game warden issued him a permit for the other one. He was
offered $30,000 for the two deer as they were(by some guy from New York).
He took them to a taxidermist and is having the two bucks mounted like
they are(full body mounts).
Pretty cool huh?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!They were found in Schuyler County,
Illinois earlier in November 2003.
