    If you're going to brag about poaching a trophy buck, you'd better have about $15,000 to back it up.

    That is how much two men have been ordered to pay in fines and costs, including a record restitution penalty of $13,277 under a new state law, after they were convicted of illegally killing a celebrity white-tailed deer in Side Cut Metropark in early October.

    The deer was a large-antlered, 15-point buck known to some Side Cut fans as "Big Boy" and to others as "Stickers," said Steve Thomson, a wildlife investigator for Ohio Wildlife District 2. It was among the most-often photographed and familiar animals in the park's ever-growing deer herd and was featured in The Blade last year.

    It had been aged by a state wildlife biologist at 8 1/2 to 9 1/2 years old.

    "Many people were instrumental in bringing these two to justice," Mr. Thomson said. He cited assistance from wildlife photographers, wildlife watchers, deer check-station operators, several sporting goods store employees, meat processing employees, and a taxidermist.

    A 15-point buck, known to some as ‘Big Boy’ and others as ‘Stickers,’ was among the most photographed animals at Side Cut Metropark. Two men were convicted of poaching the deer.

    The men convicted of illegally killing the deer are Justin Angles, 20, of Fostoria and Dan Mahoney, 20, of Akron. Both are students at the University of Toledo.
