Tom Dagley’s 14-pointer

November 20, 2009

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 14

Kill Date: Nov. 20, 2009

County: Edgar

Season: Shotgun

EDITOR’S NOTE: Here in the words of Marshall firearm hunter Tom Dagley is the story of his hunt for an Edgar County 14-point buck.

I shot this deer at approximately 9 a.m. on the opening morning of the 2009 firearm season. He appeared with four does, a 10-pointer and an 8-pointer. 

A coyote appeared at the same time and watched the deer at a distance of about 15 yards before disappearing into the brush. 

The 14-pointer was in heavy brush and had to continually run off the other two bucks. 

Finally after about 15 to 20 minutes the deer presented me an open, broadside shot at approximately 80 yards. 

I used an H&R bull barrel single-shot shotgun.
