John Carr’s Illinois bowkill

November 25, 2010

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 12

Kill Date: 11-16-2010

County: Macon

Season: Bow

It was 3 days before the Illinois 1st firearm season. I climbed into my favorite stand in a funnel along a creek at 10 a.m. It was quiet until 3:30, when I started seeing deer moving along the creek. At 3:45, a doe came running up to me, with this buck right behind her. I waited until he was in the open and yelled to stop him. At 20 yards, the arrow hit perfectly, right behind the shoulder, he turned and was gone. The whole encounter lasted less than 15 seconds. I slipped out and went home to give him time to lay down. I came back later with my son and 2 friends and after a short tracking job, found him 70 yards away. He field-dressed 240 lbs and green scored 187.
