Default IL Firearm Buck 2019

With approximately 15 minutes of legal shooting time left on the final day of the first firearm season, I turned to see this buck standing about 60 yards away in a field. I grabbed the muzzleloader and shot. Watched him crash. I knew he had some decent antlers, but had no idea his size until I got to him. It is my largest racked whitetail to date.

Just pulled the card in my camera. Here he is on the hoof heading to the "scene of the crime".

That’s a beautiful buck! Congrats. I took my largest whitetail in IL a number of years ago. They sure can grow some fine animals!
