Buck of the Week: First hard antlers

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bob Coine of Heartland Studios heard I was running short of BOTW: Unplugged nominations this week and sent this one.


He e-mailed:

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.
