Jon Washburn’s 18-pointer

October 09, 2007

Illinois Outdoors

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 18

Kill Date: Oct. 9, 2007

County: Fayette

Season: Bow

On Oct. 9, 2007, the thermometer was hovering near 90 degrees at mid-day in Fayette County. But Jon Washburn of Brownstown, owner of Hide-N-Camo and Buck Stop Archery in Brownstown, still planned to hunt that night.

And he knew that given the heat, deer were probably not going to move until the last minutes of daylight. So he stayed in his stand, waiting, swatting mosquitos and sweating.

Finally, in the last minutes of daylight, Washburn saw a big 18-point buck. The deer stepped into shooting range just in time and Washburn made good on his shot. Washburn said the 18-point rack had a gross score of 186 inches.
