Rodney L’Italien harvests 217-pound buck
EAGLE LAKE, Maine - Rodney L’Italien displays the eight-point, 217-pounds-dressed buck he shot on Wednesday, Nov. 19 in Winterville. L’Italien had a hard time tracking the deer, he said. Because he had once been lost for two days at age 17 and because he was worried about getting lost again while tracking, he called the Maine Warden Service. District Game Warden David Milligan helped him find the deer, according to L’Italien.
