Kim Lapinoja shot this buck Nov. 6 on their land near Nevis. It weighed 224 pounds field-dressed and has 18 measurable points. “We have been seeing this deer for three years on camera, but never saw him during hunting seasons,” she said. “Our neighbor has found his shed antlers for the last three years. He unofficially green-scored at 192 inches.”
