One hunter's deer of a lifetime, leads to criminal charges...

LYNN, Ind. (AP) _ An Indiana hunter faces misdemeanor charges after authorities say he illegally shot ``the deer of a lifetime.''
Indiana conservation officer Jake Carlile says 21-year-old Austin Spain killed a 16-point trophy buck the weekend of Nov. 17 in Randolph County. The size of the buck made it eligible for a national record book.
But Carlile says Spain violated Indiana law by taking more than one buck in a year.
The buck is believed to score in the 180-inch range under methods used by hunter-conservationist group Boone and Crockett. Spokesman Keith Balfourd tells The Star-Press a buck must measure 160 inches to qualify for the book and that few hunters ever take a deer that qualifies.
Illegally killed deer aren't eligible.
No phone listing for Spain could be found.
