Received this in an email today. Haven't checked the validity of the story...but the pics speak for themselves.

Shot by an Amish boy with hand made long bow.

This buck was taken by a 14 year old Amish boy near Dalton WI . He used a hand made long bow and made the killing shot by stalking the huge buck using corn shocks for cover. The boy's family would not allow him to pose with the trophy animal for pictures so a nearby neighbor, Willie Flacid posed and is also acting as spokesman for the Amish boy.

According to Flacid, the Amish family has already received several offers from outdoor sporting companies to purchase the trophy. No dollar amount has been announced yet, but according to Flacid, 'the amount of money being offered is enough that no one would ever be hard up again.'








Cheers, Vince

Nice buck but according to snopes.com it was killed in another state not WI.

It is still a great picture post. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
For the life of me I will never understand why someone will take a perfectly honest picture then make up a lie as to where it was taken and the details.
Some things were obvious. Deer is out of velvet so it was taken later in the season and for Wisconsin not many folks up there wear short sleeve shirts.
Here is what snopes.com had to say about the real photo and inaccurate description.
www.snopes.com/photos/...ptbuck.asp
It's much like Hogzilla photos. Every state wants to claim the monster pig was killed there in the FWD posts. Shocked Shocked wtf Confused Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing
