15-Pointer Poached From Ohio Park

From the Toledo Blade:

_Two Toledo men have been charged . . . in connection with the poaching last month of a well-recognized white-tailed deer in Side Cut Metropark.

The deer - a large-antlered, 15-point buck known to some Side Cut fans as Big Boy and to others as Stickers, probably was killed in the early hours of Oct. 9, according to Steve Thomson, a wildlife investigator for Ohio Wildlife District 2.

"I've had more people call me about this particular deer that any I have worked on," the investigator said. He added that a state wildlife biologist aged the deer at 8 1/2 to 9 1/2 years old. . . ._
