MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It’s a story that you just can’t quite make up, and it’s one that Ryan Beaton can tell his family and friends for the rest of his life.

Beaton, from the north metro suburb of Ramsey, headed to Ottertail County on Friday for some weekend hunting.

On November 11, 2011, you guessed it, he bagged an 11-point buck. His excitement is unmistakable in the picture he submitted, and you can guess that he’ll have plenty of venicine once he cleans and guts the deer.

    And it took him 11 shots to hit it, right?

    The word is spelled: venison

    I’ll bet the editor that reviewed this story didn’t graduate from the 11th grade! (spell venison)

    Matt and Wayne, I was going to make the same comment, but researched it first and find enough listings of ‘venicine’ as referring to deer meat that I let it go. Venicine appears in several texts as the adjective form of venison, which is something I didn’t know, so realizing that the editor’s vocabulary might be much larger than mine, I backed off, even if he usd the adjective instead of the noun. On the flip side ‘Venicine’ wasn’t in the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Anybody know what ‘venison’ in Italian is?

    Carne di cervo (meat of deer)

    Either way you spell it, that dear is ded!

      LOL Bruce. That’s funny. Typos and misspellings drive me crazy unless they’re done in fun like this. (It was just in fun, right???)
