Illinois hunting and fishing

Jim Bolek shot this Schuyler County 7-pointer in November of 2008 during his first season of bowhunting. Writes Bolek, “The adrenaline and rush of letting the arrow fly was something I never experienced before. It is for sure, several minutes of my life, I’ll never forget. Of course my marriage and birth of my children can’t be replaced, but it was truly amazing. To be in my upper thirties, the only regret I have is not getting into bow hunting at an earlier age. But hopefully I have plenty of years ahead to make up for it.”
