Roy C. Vasel’s 9-pointer

November 17, 2006

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 9

Kill Date: Nov. 17, 2006

County: Lee

Season: Shotgun

Want to kill a big buck? Make the most of your first hunting trip, as Roy Vasel of Elburn did during the 2006 shotgun season.

Vasel was invited to come hunting by his father-in-law, who has 220 acres just north of Dixon. But his father-in-law had no idea how lucky his newest hunter would turn out to be.

Vasel sat at the base of a tree 40 yards from a deer trail in a spot his father-in-law had suggested. After 45 minutes of sitting, eight does and a nine-point buck walked past. Vasel shot the deer with his Remington 870 12-gauge shotgun.

“I don’t even remember if the gun made a sound I was so excited,” Vasel said. “It was like the whole world went silent. The buck expired within minutes. I was shaking for nearly 15 minutes. I was hooked!”
