Bob Coine of Heartland Studios heard I was running short of BOTW: Unplugged nominations this week and sent this one.
I'm happy to nominate our first buck steppin out with hard antler! He's not old or large antlered, but he got my blood pumping for deer season!
I was tempted to correct the sinister eye from Cudde trail cam photo, but decided it added something special.
BOTW: Unplugged tops the Field Notes on the outdours page of the Sun-Times on Sundays when bucks are around. An online version appears here, usually on Saturday or Sunday during the season.
I am low on nominations, though several, including Coine's, came in late last week after I posted a plea.
Send nominations for BOTW: Unplugged, the weekly celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
