Conservation officials say they could be among the top 5 found in Missouri’s history.



St. Charles, Mo—The king of bucks, the world-famous Missouri Monarch, was nearly overthrown last week in St. Charles County.
On the evening of Wednesday, March 13, an antler shed hunter discovered a large, near-record set of non-typical antlers while searching the August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area in St. Charles.
The shed hunter brought the antlers—which were still attached to the top half of the skull—to the attention of Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) Wildlife Biologists, who examined them.
