Hanging Buck Stolen
Timothy Forrett is not a happy hunter. Forrett had harvested an 8 point buck during Vermont's muzzleloader season. It was the largest buck Forrett had ever bagged, as well as the largest weighed in at his weigh station during muzzleloader season at 177 lbs.
Now all Forrett has left of that buck, is the rope that it was hanging from on a tree in his front yard. Forrett had hung it in his yard, along a well traveled road. He says it was too large for the garage, but also he wanted to show it off a little bit. With that, he now only has pictures.
Around 5 pm someone backed up a pick-up truck into Forrett's yard, cut the rope, and drove off with a trophy buck. Vermont state police are treating it as a theft, as it is Forrett's property. They haven't set the severity of the charges, as it is hard to place a monetary value on the buck. Forrett is offering a $1000 reward for the return of his buck. From WCAX.com.
