Most memorable outing in Illinois? My Dad took me last year during the youth deer season. It was my first deer hunt. We saw a doe and two fawns in a weed field. We stalked them down through a creek for about 30 minutes. Finally, we when got to the edge of the weed field, they were close enough for me to shoot the button buck. The deer walked towards us and stopped about 10 yards away. When I shot the button buck he ran about 20 yards and dropped. As we were standing there, a big 10-point buck stood up in the weeds, not more than 10 yards from us. We never saw him before. I had a perfect shot at him when he stood up, but could not shoot him because I had already killed the button buck. He stood there looking at us for about 20 seconds then he ran away. My Dad said it was a huge buck and I thought it was too.
