Gary "Bucky" Buckmeier and his wife Loretta moved to New York Mills in 1985 and bought a farm east of town and for the next quarter-century the local deer population was safe from Bucky's gun.


Upon arrival to town, the couple quickly befriended Arnie Weller and his son Doug and the rest of the family. For two years, Lyle Teberg and Don Nesges hunted the fields on the Buckmeier property.
