Deer Park's big buck’s celebrity lives

Contest to officially name legendary buck under way

A grassroots campaign is underway to officially name the recently deceased, legendary Deer Park buck, unofficially known at Cinnamon Bun.

Contestants looking for inspiration can visit the big buck who now resides on the wall of the Deer Park Public Library community room.

According to Deer Park resident Morgan Olson, the contest is actually looking for two names, one for the deceased buck and one for his successor.

Here’s what Morgan posted on the Village of Deer Park Facebook page (
