Monster Oklahoma Buck Poacher Sentenced
In Latimer County Oklahoma there was a famous buck that the locals called the "BP" buck. Unfortunately in late 2009 the buck was poached, but due to a tip and careful law enforcement work, the poacher has been brought to justice. The Oklahoman has a write up on the buck, the case, and the sentencing.
The antlers from the “BP” buck were found hidden in an air duct compartment in a wall. Authorities also discovered 103 other untagged deer antlers in the home. Kenny Nixon, 35, of Bokoshe pleaded guilty on March 17 in Latimer County to several misdemeanor wildlife violations in connection with the “BP” buck, including shooting a deer in a closed season and illegal possession of a whitetail deer.
