A 10-point buck hit by an SUV caused a whole lot of angst out in Des Plaines recently. The guy who hit it didn't want it. One guy, a police officer, only wanted the head, while another guy, a hunter and iron worker, felt it was unethical to not take the whole thing. In the end, the Des Plaines PD got a deer carcass thrown at its door and the iron worker was charged with littering. At least no one woke up with a bloody deer head in their bed.
