All I can say is I'm blessed! I hunted so hard this year up there, this was my last trip and I killed him last morning of the trip. He came off a ridge and chased a doe out into a cut bean field in front of me. Nobody had hunted the stand I was in all year. Hard to sit on them fields when you have a good amount of timber to hunt. Super pumped! I've killed bigger bucks rack wise but I've never worked harder and hunted harder for any other buck! He's a hoss! Grossed him at 121" 8point. At least 3.5 I'm thinking 4.5 just by body size and weight!

If you will notice, those yucks killed in IL have a much darker coat than ours. That is because the soil is so different up there.
