The rack of a record-setting white-tailed buck taken by poachers will be on display at the Minnesota State Fair near the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) building on Tuesday, Aug. 31, from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Death of the record eight-point buck garnered national attention late last year when it was discovered that the animal was poached near White Rock in southeastern Minnesota. Troy Reinke, 32, Cannon Falls, is currently serving jail time after pleading guilty to a variety of charges earlier this year in connection with the incident. Other poached wildlife also will be displayed throughout the State Fair in the DNR's "Wall of Shame." This is a traveling display of poached trophy heads that state conservation officers take to sports shows each year.
