Kim Knapp’s 9 pointer

December 12, 2010

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 9

Kill Date: December 10,2010

County: Peoria

Season: Muzzleloader

Kim had hunted the first shotgun season and had missed a large buck with her shotgun and was hanging her head pretty low, only to be outwitted one more time by a large buck on late Sunday of the first season.  She was unable to hunt the second shotgun season because of her work commitments with the Illinois Farm Bureau annual meeting in St. Louis.  So when muzzleloader season came, she was more than ready to head to the woods and was happy to know that none of her other family members had harvested the big buck she had seen earlier. She headed to her stand with great anticipation.  Finally, with only about a half hour left of the days hunt…he appeared !  He had several “girl friends” with him, and she was just sure he would never come her way.  But as she waited,  he broke away from his friends and came to her.  With only 10 minutes left, her dream had come true !  She harvested her 9 point buck, which just roughly has scored 156 inches !
