Bobby Minogue, 20, of Cloquet shot this impressive buck on the first Friday of Minnesota’s firearms deer season.
He had walked back to his stand at midday when he saw the buck and shot it.
He couldn’t find it, but his dad, Robert Minogue of Cloquet, and friend Craig West of Rice Lake, Wis., found the buck the next morning.
The buck’s antlers hadn’t yet been officially measured, and the buck wasn’t weighed on a certified scale. (Bobby Minogue photo)
