Wis. woman offered big bucks for big buck

Brenda Morga totaled her Ford Mustang when she struck a 300-pound buck in rural Richland County.

It turns out the whitetail buck might be worth more to her.

She hit it this month while with her 4-year-old daughter and her 18-year-old-niece.

After calming her passengers, Morga got an inkling the deer was special when a truck driver started taking photos.

The buck has 15 points, a near two-foot chasm between its antler tips and three rare "drop tines." Those are antler points growing down from the main beam instead of up, a characteristic of older bucks.

She tells the Wisconsin State Journal that she's been offered up to $10,000. After people started calling at all hours and stopping by, she says she sent the head and antlers out of state.
