Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 21

Kill Date: Nov. 6, 2007

County: Knox

Season: Bow

Troy Huffman shot this big buck on Nov. 6, 2007 at 11:30 a.m. while hunting in Knox County.

The 21-pointer scored 209 1/8 inches at the 2008 Illinois Deer & Turkey Classic, where it was displayed on a pedestal mount done by taxidermist Locie Murphy of Bushnell.

Writes Huffman: “I had a small buck breed a doe 30 yards from my tree stand 15 minutes before he showed up looking for her. The shot was 29 yards.”

Huffman did not have any pictures of this buck on his trail cameras, but a neighbor did.

The buck grossed 214 1/8 inches and field dressed at 205 pounds. He had a 22 7/8-inch inside spread.
