World Class Whitetail Deer Display coming to the East Otter Tail County Fair, July 23-26
The award winning and ever popular "Wild Whitetails" exhibit is coming to the East Otter Tail, Co. Fair, July 23-26, 2009. The exhibit, which has been called the "greatest Whitetail Deer display in North America", is sure to astonish all who see it.
Wild Whitetails owner Dan Cole has put together one of the most unique collections of Whitetail Deer ever assembled for public display. The exhibit features over 20 "wild antlered" deer mounts of unique antler configurations. People can spend a lifetime outdoors and never see these types of antlers. Says Cole, "These deer are unbelievable. We wanted to give the viewer more then they expected. We have consistently proven that we have accomplished that." Cole says he didn't focus on the largest bucks in the world, although the "average" score of the deer on display is an astounding 238 inches, rather he focused on the unique aspects of different antler configurations. "The Whitetail Deer is a very unique animal in that no two sets of antlers are exactly alike, kind of like that snow flake theory. What we have done is take that uniqueness to an extreme level. We will show you what unique and different look like when they are combined with huge!" For example: One buck that is called the "Iowa Phantom" was never seen by man. However, he did leave behind four sets of his shed antlers proving his existence. His antlers that are on display have six drop tines and score over 280 inches! These are the type of deer that Legends are made of. As unique as the display itself is, the custom designed trailer that houses it all was built specifically for the purpose that everyone and anyone, no matter what their physical requirements are, will be able to enjoy the display. The entire display is shown inside a 38 foot enclosed trailer that is handicap accessible and safe for all ages. Cole wants to point out that the display is not just for hunters, but for anyone who enjoys the outdoors and likes seeing wildlife. "We put allot of thought into building this display and feel it has been done in very good taste. If you like seeing deer, or no matter what your wildlife interests are, we are certain that you'll enjoy the unique beauty that these deer have to offer." Dale Livingood, sales manager for Autumn Legends of Lakeville, MN., had this to say after seeing the Wild Whitetails display for the first time, "I've seen all the big whitetail displays, the Legendary collection, Bass Pro Shops, the Kings collection, just to name a few. If you had a choice between a Ford Escort and a new BMW it's pretty obvious what you would choose. I can tell you right now, Wild Whitetails is the BMW of deer displays". The display is a two time State Fair Grand Champion award winner. Admission is only $2.00 per person.
Wherever Whitetail Deer roam, there are always a few that are bigger then all the others, those that hold a unique and genuine character that none other share, those that become local legends, and those that are seen as ghosts of the wilderness. It's these deer, the Ghosts and the Legends, which are the epitome of Wild Whitetails.
Wild Whitetails is based out of Dilworth, MN, and is family owned and operated by Dan and Holly Cole, along with their two daughters Emily and Hanna. The display is a visual testament to the uniqueness of the Whitetail Deer and the admiration and fixation that mankind has for the antlers of North Americas most popular big game animal.
