Joe Matheson’s 21-pointer

October 29, 2007

Illinois Outdoors

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 21

Kill Date: Oct. 29, 2007

County: Moultrie

Season: Bow

Joe Matheson of Sullivan was in the timber last February when he found a huge matched 16-point set. He spent the next three weekends “combing the area” to find the most likely place a buck would bed down.

“Lo and behold, I picked one spot and the second time I set up on it during this bow season I killed the buck,” Matheson said.

That big bowhunt hunt came on Oct. 29, 2007 just 1.5 miles from where Matheson had first found the sheds.

Matheson’s buck — which had grown into a 21-pointer scoring 190 3/8 inches — was at the 2008 Illinois Deer & Turkey Classic.
