    If you're a white-tailed deer in Milwaukee County, odds are you live in or near the county's park system. The 15,000 acres of parks and parkways provide more than 90% of the deer habitat in the county, according to an assessment by the Department of Natural Resources. That's a lot of land, but not enough for a deer to hide in. Especially if you're a big-racked buck like "Bow Tie." Bow Tie was a very well-known white-tailed deer that was frequently seen in Milwaukee County. Randy Crawford of Wauwatosa is a wildlife photographer and hunter who enjoys viewing and capturing...

    An Oklahoma girl may make it into the record books after killing a 16-point buck last weekend. Micalah Millard, who is just 14-years-old, was hunting with her father when she spotted a large buck through cameras set up on her grandfather’s ranch. Hours later, the buck reappeared. “I was surprised that I made the shot and hit him,” Micalah told KJRH. “She has killed deer before, but nothing like this. Nobody I know has ever killed anything like this,” said Malachi, Micalah’s father. Now, she must wait 60 days to wait for an official score, but the buck will likely...

    It’s a racially charged photo the Chicago Police Department didn’t want the public to see: two white cops posing with rifles as they stand over a black man lying on his belly with deer antlers on his head. But a Cook County judge has refused to keep secret the shocking image of former Officers Timothy McDermott and Jerome Finnigan kneeling with what the police department says is an unidentified African-American drug suspect. Believed to have been taken in a West Side police station between 1999 and 2003, the Polaroid photo was given to the city by the feds in 2013...

    Hunters from all parts of the country go to Kansas hoping to shoot a buck with a trophy-class set of antlers. Well, for Chuck Rorie, half of the dream came true last month when he shot what he thought was a nice buck. Instead, the set of eight-point antlers were attached to a doe. “I didn’t think much about it; it just looked like a nice buck when I was watching it and shot it,” said Rorie, of Monroe. “But when I was skinning it I realized something didn’t look right. It didn’t have the right private parts.

    Prized for their impressive antlers, red deer have been caught in the hunters' sights for generations. But a deer's antlers are much more than decorative. They are lethal weapons that stags crash together when duelling. John Currey, from The University of York, UK, has been intrigued by the mechanical properties of bone for over half a century and has become fascinated by the mechanical properties of antler through a long-standing collaboration with Tomas Landete-Castillejos at the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha. 'Antlers look as if they are dry,' says Currey, 'but no one knew if they really are dry when used...

    Here’s a great redneck way to listen to your favorite tunes. Preferably outdoors, where you aren’t poking holes in the wall. But if you have to sit in the woods while rocking out, be careful that some hunter doesn’t take a shot at you, otherwise you and your headphones will end up on his trophy wall looking like the lovechild of Bambi and Elton John.

    Man Shoots Doe With Rack of Antlers MICHIGAN, N.D. (AP) -- When Carmen Erickson dropped a deer with a single shot in a cattail slough south of here, he thought he'd downed a nice buck. Unlike his shot, he was a little off. The deer was a doe. "It's got no male utilities," said Erickson, who lives in Minot. "It has teats ... it was pretty unusual." Six hunting partners with Erickson witnessed the doe with a 4-by-4 rack. "I'm sure this story will be around for 10 years," he said. "At least in our group." Erickson notified the state...

    Girl unconscious for two days after puncture wound THE ASSOCIATED PRESS KULM, N.D. - A 2-year-old girl is recovering after her skull was pierced by the antler of a deer that ran into her family's vehicle, her mother says. ''Weeks ago, we were standing over her bed not knowing if she was going to live,'' said McKenzie Giesler's mother, Carrie. The Gieslers - Carrie and Gary and three of their six children, McKenzie, 5-year-old Allison and 6-month-old Madison - were traveling to Jamestown on Dec. 14 when their sport utility vehicle was hit by a deer on U.S. Highway 281....
