This 8-Point Rack Would Have Been A Record

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Department of Natural Resources put a trophy-size rack of antlers on display at their offices in St. Paul on Tuesday, but they’re not exactly happy about it.

The 8-point rack would have been a world record, if it had been taken legally.

Instead, a poacher used a light to freeze the deer while hunting on private land. The DNR confiscated the antlers and debated what to do with them.

They finally decided to put them on display to call attention to the unfairness of poaching.

The DNR also made replicas of the antlers to take around the state when doing presentations for its Turn in Poachers program.
