Buck of the Week: Unplugged: In velvet

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Jerry Collins of Forest Park submitted this velvet buck for Buck of the Week: Unplugged, the weekly celebration of live, big bucks around Chicago outdoors.


This buck was photographed in Marshall County, Indiana.

I know this really stretches the definition of Chicago outdoors. But beside Collins being from Forest Park, I would note the county seat of Marshall County is Plymouth, the hometown of former Bulls coach Scott Skiles.
