LYNN, Ind. — Austin M. Spain bagged an antlered deer that could have gone down in the record books.

Instead, he faces a criminal record and being booked into jail.

Spain, 21, Lynn, illegally shot what a state conservation officer and a Boone and Crockett Club official call “the deer of a lifetime.”

The 16-point trophy buck is believed to score in the 180-inch range by scoring methods of Boone and Crockett, a hunter-conservationist organization.

“Indiana law requires you to take only one buck per year,” said conservation officer Jake Carlile. “He exceeded the limit. He killed the trophy buck the weekend of Nov. 17-18. It was his second buck. The first one was earlier in November, also in Randolph County.”   Click Link Below For Full Story!
