Winter Bags Triple-Drop-Tine Booner
By Dave Hurteau
From Minnesota’s The Caledonia Argus:
The legend trophy buck that has Houston County residents talking these days is ‘triple drop tine,’ or TD as nicknamed by the Yucatan Valley residents who knew him well. At 8 1/2 years old this buck was found dead from natural causes by Matt Semling on his farm in Yucatan Valley on Feb. 7. TD was found after over five years of being observed, studied and hunted by hundreds of locals and a few people traveling from as far as Florida to take a chance at bagging this rare specimen. . . .
The rack scored 181 inches on the Boone and Crockett scoring charts.
