Dakota Wright’s 12-pointer

County: Rock Island

Season: Shotgun

EDITOR’S NOTE: Here in the words of gun hunter Dakota Wright of Illinois City is the story of his hunt for a 12-point Rock Island County buck.

I was down checking my traps when my dad called me and told me that some guys were getting ready to walk the timber next to our house.

So I drove up there and walked to my pond because that’s where the deer usually head to if they get chased out. I heard someone shoot and I looked over to see this buck running down the edge of the timber.

I ran up to a hill not 100 yards behind my house. I only had to wait for a little bit and then this buck came running out of the corn field right up the hill towards me.

I never saw how big his rack was until I picked him up because he had corn stocks tangled in them.

I was lucky that this deer didn’t stay in the in the cornfield. He was so close when I shot him that the wad of the slug was in him.
