    COLUMBIA, Mo. – Bow hunter Bill Wise of Columbia has some newfound fame after bagging one of the world's largest set of white-tail deer antlers. Wise shot a 300-pound buck in Howard County in December.

    After a month-long investigation by state wildlife officials determined no wrongdoing, Wise is able to celebrate his catch. The buck had a 19-point rack measuring more than 17 feet, or 210 inches. The deer-scoring company Buckmasters says that's the second largest rack it's ever seen.

    Wise says he first saw the deer n November and put off work as a homebuilder hunting it for the next month. His wife, Tara, says a number of companies are now seeking out her husband for endorsements.

    I watched it on the Springfield news this morning at 4:30. Thank you for the better picture Marty. All I could find was the news station report. It showed a great pic on the news cast but there web site only had a little pic. What a buck!!!

    If he is smart-everything from the bow he was using to the toothpaste he used that morning to the coffee he bought at the gas station.Once in a lifetime deer-hope he makes enough to enjoy hunting the rest of his life!!!
