BANNER, Ill.--So I was barreling down Route 24 on the west side of the Illinois River early Saturday morning.
And I'm keeping a watch out for deer in the fields.
When I spotted the photo above near Banner. Or somewhere near there.
I had time. I was a few minutes ahead of my fishing buddy Pete Riedesel.
So I whipped around and snapped a couple pictures. Now I figured I would be lucky to get one photo before he spooked.
Then it hit me he wasn't moving at all.
And I realized I was duped by some bowhunter's practice dummy in a pasture.
Made me smile. What else could I do?
