Mathew Anderson’s first buck

October 10, 2009

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 4

Kill Date: Oct. 10, 2009

County: Fulton

Season: Youth firearm

EDITOR’S NOTE: Here in the words of London Mills youth hunter Mathew Anderson is the story of his hunt for a Fulton County buck.

This is my first deer ever. Opening day of the youth season at 7:45 AM and this buck was the eighth deer I’d seen already that morning.

He was following a doe and a fawn and when he stepped into a small opening just 40 yards away, my Dad bleated and the buck stopped and looked my way. One shot from my T/C Encore struck him in the heart and he didn’t go 50 yards!

It was THE most excited I have EVER been in my life. It was also the most excited I have ever seen my Dad! My Dad was soooo proud of me that you would have thought that the buck was a LOT bigger than he was. It didn’t matter to us…. he was a trophy!
