Stray Casts will intelligently report and observe, hopefully with a touch of wit, on daily occurrences, reports and releases related to Chicago-area outdoors from bucks to bass to birds to bugs

Day at the Beach? Buck of the Week: Unplugged

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Ed Pasiewicz photographed this buck at Illinois Beach State Park on Nov. 11 and earns Buck of the Week: Unplugged honors.


`The buck seemed to be resting after a hard nights work,'' e-mailed the Beach Park man, who described the essence of the rut. I would put the peak of the rut around here as the following day on Nov. 12.

BOTW: Unplugged is a celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors and the Chicago suburban areas. It will run on the outdoors page of the Sun-Times on Sundays as long as good offereings keep coming. An extended online version appears here, usually on Saturday or Sunday. (What can I say? I'm behind from deer hunting.)

E-mail BOTW: Unplugged and BOTW nominations to BOTW is a celebration of big bucks bagged by hunters and runs on the S-T's outdoors page on Wednesdays.
