Doe with bling bling

March 14, 2008 at 10:45 AM

You never know what you’re going to find if you look closely enough at a deer you shoot. Ticks, sure. But there’s more than that to be found on whitetails that live in farm country, as C Wank of Hoopeston learned last fall.

After shooting a doe, he examined her hooves and discovered she had a unique “bracelet.”

“It was a link from a gather chain from an old auger or implement,” he said.

And yes, Wank is having the legs mounted.
