Default Wild sunday in pike co. Ill!!!

I was going to a Buddies house for a birthday party sunday up in pike co and on my way to his house I see a buck standing in his back field.
The deer looks to be eating, but it is 1:00pm. So I pull in his drive and go in the house and tell him there is a buck in his back field, so we go look and the deer just stands there.
Well we find out he is locked with another buck which is dead. So we call the Warden out and we help him cut the horn off the dead one and the 12 pointer goes in my buddies back yard and lays down under his apple tree, he didnt look so good. We can only hope for the best, he would be a nice one to get bow season!!Wild sunday in pike co. Ill!!!-102_1433.jpg
