I hunt in Macoupin County also. I haven't had the opportunity to kill any "big" bucks...yet. But I have found 2 dead turkey hunting, that would score 140 - 150. I'm sure you know just because you hunt a county known for big bucks doesn't mean you see any. Genetics, hunting pressure, location, food, deer management, etc... are all variables for the size of bucks in your area. I have hunted around Palmyra for over 25 years now at the same location. Good luck!
