Chicago fringe: Buck of the Week: Unplugged

Linda Weaver sent this nomination for Buck of the Week: Unplugged.

BOTWunplugged01-03-09

BOTW: Unplugged is a weekly celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors and the suburbs. It runs Sundays in the outdoors page of the Sun-Times. An extended online version is usually posted here Saturday or Sunday.

Here's the word from Weaver:

Please find attached two pictures of Bucks that my husband, J. Weaver, took. They are on East River Road at Lawrence Avenue (NWX-corner) in the Forest Preserve, (the Robinson Family Burial ground). We have seen pictures in your articles of other Bucks, and thought that being in the Chicago-land area they are a lot closer for people to go see.

I think that is one area where an overpopulation of deer is causing concern and problems. But there are some big deer there, as Weaver's nomination shows.
