Illinois Outdoors

One of my favorite bloggers,Mike Hanback, posted this picture and entry from a Louisiana hunter named Troyce who shot this impressive monster on Nov. 11, 2007 in Southern Illinois. The buck is a main-frame 10-pointer with 21 total points and a 20.5-inch inside spread. One brow tine is 10 inches long and palmated with six points on top of it. The other side has a splite brow tine that is also about 10 inches.

Troyce said the rack green-scored 195 inches.

Troyce said he was hunting in the afternoon and a doe walked by. Five minutes later, this buck appeared and he shot the deer at two steps.
