Jeff Whalen’s 18-pointer

November 22, 2009

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 18

Kill Date: Nov. 22, 2009

County: Kendall

Season: Shotgun

EDITOR’S NOTE: Here in the words of firearm hunter Jeff Whalen is the story of his hunt for an 18-point Kendall County buck.

It was about 9 a.m. and after sitting in my ground blind not seeing a thing I decided to do a little slow walking.

With the wind in my favor I eased along an old fence line. After about an hour of constant glassing I had started to work away from that fence but decided to swing back closer to check out these two old hedge trees.

Sure enough there he was bedded down right in between staring right at me. I had just enough time pop off a round.

The buck green scored at 231 inches.

Unbelievable deer Jeff!  I also hunt Kendall Co. and your deer is quite a motivator.  Not looking for specifics…but are you hunting anywhere near the Fox River area near Yorkville?

Awesome buck Jeff.  I hunt about two miles from where you harvested this monster. I have not seen a buck anything close to this buck.
