Big bucks, big racks

The event attracted 51 entries, but just 14 entrants brought in racks to be measured. The total measurement of the 14 racks was 2,218-1/2 inches. Chad Schinstock, of Salem, won first place with a buck rack measuring 191-7/8 inches. Brad Pardol, of Donnellson, was second and Ben Thompson, of Sperry, third.
