Bill Cantrall photographed this buck in Cook County near Westchester on Nov. 20 and earned Buck of the Week: Unplugged honors.
BOTW: Unplugged is a celebration of the big bucks running around Chicago and the suburbs. It runs on the outdoors page of the Sunday Sun-Times and in an extended online version here, usually being posted on Saturday or Sunday.
BOTW: Unplugged started earlier this fall. A couple weeks ago, I thought it was about at end, but there are still good nominations coming in, including a photo of a rather well-known Chicago buck to come.
