Alleged Father-and-Son Poachers Charged With Killing 26-Point Giant

From the Chicago Tribune:

_Charged with misdemeanors in the incident are 45-year-old Wayne Nisiewicz and his 24-year-old son Anthony Nisiewicz, both of rural Horicon. Holmes says the son told wardens that he legally shot big buck with a bow and arrow but investigators believe the arrow wound was inflicted after the buck had died.

Holmes says the buck would be the third largest deer with ‘non-typical’ antlers ever taken in Wisconsin if legally shot with a bow and arrow.
