Sobczak, of Saginaw, Minn., said he got his 8-point, 200-plus-pound buck on the state’s second day of deer hunting opener in October. Saginaw is north of Duluth, Minn.
DULUTH, Minn. - They say timing is everything. So maybe Kurt Ehlers and Joseph Johnson can chalk up the landing of a 27-inch walleye to getting a later-than-planned start to their ice fishing trip.
