I was fortunate enough to be able to hunt in the great state of Illinois. I killed this 237 BC buck with 17 scorable points and weighed in at 255lbs. This is a buck of a lifetime and a hunt I will never forget.
Filled my last buck tag Thursday evening when I got a double lung shot from my tenpoint crossbow.He took off and stopped at 50 yds watched him fall no tracking through the thick cover. Had a great year.
Thanks to Dr. David Clause from the Opelousas Orthopaedic Clinic and Kellogg's Hunting Club, 9 year old Austin Stelly who was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy almost 3 years ago was able to kill this buck.

Well it looks like she did it again. My stepdaughter killed her second 9pt this season. We told her after the first one it might be a while before she tops the first kill. Well she proved us wrong by killing this nice 9 which was bigger than the first. Great job girl!
Ashlynn Boyer went hunting with her dad (Davey Boyer)on the families new lease on Lake Bistineau area they had only recently acquired and hunted on twice before that Saturday morning on December 15, 2012 with her new Remington 270 in tow, having a conversation with her dad, she never expected a deer this big to walk out 205 yards away from her, with a small window to shoot she took aim and shot....

I found this ridiculous 8pt, after ten minutes being in the stand on the frigid 28degree Sunday morning the 30th of '012!!! I didnt get to the property until 6:45, yeah thats rite, the sun was on the horizon. After a doe crossed the road on my drive in, i decided to park it and hike my way in. Creeping about a half mile in with the wind in my face, I made it to the stand. 10 mins later, doe.... Read More
