Hunter accused of illegally killing record buck
RED WING, Minn. (AP) - A bow-and-arrow hunter is accused of illegally taking a trophy white-tailed buck in Goodhue County.
Troy Alan Reinke of Cannon Falls was charged Thursday with 13 counts of illegally taking a deer.
Court records say Reinke shot the deer on Halloween while hunting on private land. The state Department of Natural Resources believes the buck has the largest set of
eight-point antlers ever measured.
Prosecutors say it’s not the only buck Reinke killed in October. They say he admitted taking two others. The charges carry a maximum year in jail, $19,000 in fines and revocation of his hunting license if convicted.
