Leaping Whitetail Deer Statue

A detailed, large statue of a whitetail deer in mid-leap, which is something that all drivers in northern Wisconsin watch out for when traveling in the northwoods. This one is mounted above a scrolling marquee in front of the log-style Whitetail Inn restaurant supper club. Friday night fish fry is a staple of Wisconsin cuisine, thus the marquee statement.

[Rich, 08/23/2013]

The leaping whitetail deer is a roadside statue occasionally spotted elsewhere in MN-WI-MI, but the message board gives this one an element of snapshot suspense. Usually they leap over a less expressive log.
