Here are some pictures of a freaking bruiser buck taken by my good friend and hunting partner. He shot this buck hunting off the ground right after it made a fresh scrape as daylight was fading fast (last 10 min of light) After what started as a very slow hunt for him, the action picked up at about 6:15 as 6 doe/fawns came out to the fresh cut corn to munch. A few minutes later this brute stepped out and he smoked it at 10 yards. Clean kill and short track led us to this GIANT. I took the cape for him so he could take it to the taxidermist and we took 80 pounds of venison in for summer sausage and sticks. It was an awesome experience to be a part of and you can see in the pictures we're all smiles. No score attempted yet, but there's no doubt it's HUGE. The big 8 point rack from his deer last year actually fits rather easily inside this one. No doubt it has raised the bar for our hunting standards, who knows what's next? Maybe he'll get an even BIGGER one next year lol. Anyway I'll attach the pics, congrats on a true trophy buddy!

Great buck! Nice mass and very wide. Looks like they are starting to check scrapes pretty good.

Anybody else think its been a great year for Chitown hunters? Seems like we are getting a lot of good bucks on her lately. Wish I wasn't so busy for work but once November hits it will be on for me!

DeSoto-We hunt in Will, Grundy, and Kankakee Counties maily. This one was shot in Grundy County
BigB-It looks even bigger in person, no kidding. About another week and it should be getting REALLY good. And yea quite a few big 'uns goin down in the northern part of the state this year. I'm like you, haven't got out too much(maybe 6 sits) which is nothing for me three weeks in usually. Big vacation starts next Friday!

Thanks to all who complimented, the hunter has been thrilled about this buck as you could imagine
