Jeremy Knott’s 7-pointer

October 19, 2010

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 7

Kill Date: October 9, 2010

County: Schuyler

Season: Bow

I would like to share with you the first deer my 11-year-old son Jeremy Knott got last Saturday (Oct. 9, 2010). After not seeing anything that morning we move to the other end of the property for the afternoon hunt. But on the way out we ran into a 7-point non-typical (5 on the right beam, 2 on the left) gun unloaded and in the case at 40 yards. The buck froze, giving us time to uncase, load 2 slugs, get him a rest and shoot. The shot connected, dropping him in his tracks. This was Jeremy’s third year on the youth hunt, missing deer on the first two. In the picture with Jeremy is Andrew Yepsen along to see if hunting is something he would like and good help getting the buck out of the washout it fell in.  Jeremy is in 6th grade in Canton, The buck weighed 200 pounds field dressed and was taken in Schuyler County.
