Buck dethroned?

The Hanson’ Buck’s record for antlers may be broken.

For nearly 20 years, it’s been a source of national pride among Canada’s hunters and a symbol of the enduring wildness of the Prairies.

And if a Saskatchewan MP had his way in the mid-1990s, the Hanson Buck — a white-tailed deer with the biggest antlers of their kind ever recorded in the world — would have been immortalized on the country’s new $2 coin instead of the polar bear.

But the majestic animal felled in 1993 by Biggar, Sask., farmer Milo Hanson may finally be dethroned as North American deer-hunters’ ultimate prize after a Wisconsin bow hunter killed a “monster” deer earlier this month with a rack 10 centimetres greater — according to initial, unofficial measurements — than the one adorning Canada’s most famous buck.
