It's to bad they killed it just for a line in the record books. In a youtube video the DNR rep says they were going to cut the head open and take the ear bone out to age it.

I had no idea that it wasn't released. I just don't get it. Why kill a fish like that just to find out how old it is. Does it really matter if they know how old it was?  :facepalm: :nope:
