Photo Description:
I got this pic and a few more in an email. this is the story of the bucks 

I was fortunate enough to see these bucks shortly after they were found on
November 16 near Henning , MN .  Our deer shack is located about a mile
from the swamp where the bucks were found.  Here's the story... the guy
that found them had left his stand Sunday morning and was walking back to
their shack when he noticed a tine sticking out of the swamp grass just off
the side of a four wheeler trail.  He walked over to check it out and
found the two bucks frozen in the swamp ice with only about one foot of each
deer's side and about 10 inches of the tines above the ice.  After getting
help from some hunting partners, they managed to chop the deer out of the
ice and get them loaded onto a flatbed trailer.  The deer were then brought
back to the shack and the word started to spread.  The "smaller" of the two
was a massive 8 pointer that green scored an estimated 150+ inches and the
"larger" monster was a true swamp buck with what was thought to be 18
scorable points and a green score of 190+ inches.  From what I've
heard since these photos were taken, the two bucks are gaining statewide
attention and the larger buck actually has 23 scorable points.  It is thought
that the bucks had been dead for 2 weeks before being discovered.  
Because of this, the capes had begun to deteriorate and were not capable of producing a
mountable cape.  However, new capes have been supplied and the bucks
are in the process of being mounted locked together in battle.  The twine on
the antlers was to prevent the bucks from coming unlocked when the heads
were removed.  
Also, check out the cup on the tip of the main beam on the
big guy!  Hope you enjoy the pictures.  A truly once in a lifetime
