With patience, Jim Lenc of LaGrange brought home a fine 10-pointer after bowhunting in Woodford County on Friday morning. It earns him Buck of the Week honors.

BOTW heads the Illinois Hunting Report each Wednesday during the apt times in the Sun-Times. An extended online version appears here, usually by midnight Tuesday. Yes, we are cutting it close tonight.

Here's the base tale:

Jim lenc of Lagrange bagged this Friday the 13th 10 pointer at 7:00am Friday morning bow hunting in Woodford County. This buck was shot while scoping a hillside doe trail, before calling it quits it made its way 60 yards down
into the bottom of the ravine. Took 2/1/2 hours to get out. Well worth it.

I imagine it was.

And imagined there might be more to the tale.

And there was:

Of course a lot of luck at being at right place right time - did put a lot of hours in that stand -watched that same buck skirt around me out of range the prior week.
