The story about a strong stag wandering in the district of the ‘Jeleń’ Hunting Association from Swarzędz had been circulating among the Association’s members. Once the notification of commercial hunting sent by the hunting office was received, the hunters started to track the animal. The deer was out of reach, but his presence was marked with significant tracks. During the rutting time it was barely heard. The only person that was lucky enough to see the deer for a couple of minutes was Marek Jokiel.
He was the one who served as a guide to a guest from Germany. The hunting ground was perfectly prepared for his arrival. Some hunting towers and platforms had been raised in the ruler’s district. The guest arrived on 26 September and on the same day he went hunting at around 6 p.m. After 30 minutes the deer appeared in the distance of 120 metres. It was following the group of does. The hunter put down the animal with a single shot from his hunting rifle.
The antlers weighing 10.06 kg in the shape of an irregular crown on both sides eighteen pointer were priced by the trophy assessment committee of the District Management Board of the Polish Hunting Association (ZO PZŁ) in Piła at 219.72 CIC points.
