“That’s the biggest buck I ever saw.”
Frank Schmaltz only had to walk the length of a football field and a half from his home in Osceola County to arrow the whitetail buck of his dreams. The Michigan native harvested the giant Nov. 9, just days before rifle season commenced. He took the brute of a buck using his trusty crossbow. What’s eye-opening about this trophy buck is its 25-point rack, which the Michigan Department of Natural Resources verified. Schmaltz believes the buck may have escaped from a deer farm nearby, but hasn’t confirmed that theory. “When I saw it in the woods, I said that’s the biggest buck I ever saw, and that’s the one everybody was telling me I should shoot,” Schmaltz told 9&10 News. He plans to have the trophy buck mounted and displayed proudly in his home.
