Illinois hunting and fishing

Big typical buck still walking

March 22, 2010 at 02:21 PM

Seeing a buck like this in the backyard after hunting season would make any deer hunter smile.

After snapping a picture of this big 10-pointer, you can understand why Illini Bluffs Principal Joe Stoner is already eager for the fall. Writes Stoner, “My son has been scouting this deer for two years and several hunters in the area who have seen it up close believe it to be a 190” plus. Looking for sheds but no luck yet, he survived deer season though! Can’t wait to see him next year.”

That picture must do it no justice at all, because he doesn’t look anywhere near 190”.

He’s an awesome buck though…..I would be very happy with him.

Good luck with the sheds.
