Illinois bucks: What deer mean

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Here's some real proof from ``Big Nasty'' of how big bucks mean big bucks in Illinois.

At 1 p.m. Saturday, 78 acres of land will be sold in Vermilion County.

What makes it interesting is this.

Rob Brennan shot one of the greatest non-typical bucks in Illinois, though it could not be officially scored because of freak velvet, on the for-sale land on Dec. 1, 2006.

Now, in a sign of what deer mean to Illinois, the fabled 39-point ``Big Nasty'' is the featured selling point by Ag Exchange Farm Real Estate for the land heading into Saturday's auction.

Click here to see how the deer is featured as a selling point or to learn about the sale. Or call (217) 304-1686.
