Tales from the Timber: Great youth hunt

October 20, 2009 at 01:05 AM

The Illinois youth firearm deer hunt was a rousing success for a group of youngsters from Teutopolis who hunted in Fayette and Clay counties.

All four youngsters in the group shot deer (three on Oct. 10 and one on Oct. 11) and one was an impressive 18-pointer.

Morgan Walk, 12, (pictured above) shot the same 18-pointer that her father, Doug, had trail-cam pictures of and had planned to hunt this year.

“I don’t think she understands how big that is for a first deer kill,” said Denise Walk, her mother. “Everyone was very excited at deer camp last night.”

Other successful hunters were Hannah Walk, 10, with a 4-point buck, Mitchell Hardiek, 10, with a doe and Chelsey Hardiek, 12, with a doe. Chelsey is not pictured since she shot her deer on Sunday.

Hannah’s buck was killed in Fayette County and the other three were killed in Clay County.

The adults who sat with the kids were Doug Walk, Lee Thompson, Paul Hardiek, and Roger Buhnerkempe.
