A Buck for Vern
Longtime hunter Vern Baehman had never been fortunate
enough to bag a big buck. When he was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer in 2008, some of his friends
at the Northeast Wisconsin Chapter and Wolf River Preserve
stepped up to donate
a deer hunt for him. Vern harvested this beautiful 176-inch buck.
