Chris Fitzgerald’s 13-pointer

November 01, 2008

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 13

Kill Date: Nov. 1, 2008

County: Kendall

Season: Bow

Bowhunter Chris Fitzgerald of Warrenville shot this 13-point Kendall County buck the evening of Nov. 1 to earn Buck of the Week honors from Dale Bowman and the Chicago Sun-Times.

The 22-year-old was hunting on the ground and here’s the rest of what Fitzgerald told Bowman.

“I was hunting on the ground with my brother Chuck Fitzgerald also of Warrenville when he stepped out of the treeline and gave me a broadside shot at 8 yards. We weren’t sure about the shot because of the low light so we decided to let him lay the night. After a sleepless night we went back Sunday morn and found him not far from where we saw him last. I harvested him in Plattville, Illinois.”

Added Fitzgerald: “It’s gunna be hard to top this one.’‘
