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

Buck of the Week: Family affair

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

This may be the last Buck of the Week for the 2009-10 season and it goes a tather-and-son combo from Beecher, Brian and Austin Hoekstra, 11.

I think this is the last BOTW for the year, and it seems nice to go out on this note. I have been holding this one for more than a month.

A little extra effort went a long way.

They made one more try on the final day of the first firearm season. And it paid off with this nice 8-point. They were hunting public land in Jefferson County near Mount Vernon.

BOTW leads the Illinois Hunting Report on the outdoors page of the Sun-Times each Wednesday. This may be the last for BOTW as IHR has basically come to an end for the year. An extended online version appears here.
