Mike Scott photographed this Buck of the Week: Unplugged at the forest preserve at 47th and Harlem in Stickney on Christmas.
BOTW: Unplugged is a weekly celebration of big live bucks around Chicago. It runs Sundays in the outdoors page of the Sun-Times. An extended online version is usually posted here Saturday or Sunday.
My thinking is leading toward ending it very soon for the year as bucks have or are dropping their antlers. But I think I still have a couple worthy nominations stockpiled from earlier.
If you opinions on that or nominations for BOTW: Unplugged, e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
