Scott Prosser’s 21-pointer

November 15, 2008

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 21

Kill Date: Nov. 15, 2008

County: Richland

Season: Bow

Shotgun season was approaching rapidly, so Scott Prosser decided to go out for an afternoon hunt on Nov. 15.

The bowhunter from Noble soon saw an 8-point buck run past while chasing a doe. But that was not the deer he was looking for.

That buck finally showed up just before dark. With the sun on its descent, the heavy-beamed 21-pointer came within 16 yards of Prosser’s stand. He took a less-than-perfect shot but managed to drop the 255-pound buck in about 100 yards.

Prosser then donated the meat to Illinois Sportsman Against Hunger.

The rack, however, was sent to a taxidermist.

Prosser said the buck grossed 197 4/8 inches non-typical and netted 184.
