Buck of the Week: Unplugged No. 1

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bill Peak earns the first Buck of the Week: Unplugged honors with this beauty at Hegewisch Marsh.


Traditionally, BOTW is for photos and stories from hunters with trophies. This fall, we began running them on this past Wednesday.

But Peak's was a trophy buck still very much moving around, and we have plenty of those beauties in Chicago and the suburbs. It was the first of several such submissions.

So we add BOTW: Unplugged. It will run on the Sunday outdoors page of the Sun-Times as long as it seems appropriate. I will try to post an extended online version here by Saturday or Sunday. Obviously, today is Monday.

Peak e-mailed, ``Taken at the Hegewisch Marsh, 134th Torrence Ave., Chicago.''

This is the full wide shot.
