Tom Brink nominated this backyard buck for Buck of the Week: Unplugged.
Brink sent this note a couple weeks ago in response to my plea for BOTW: Unplugged nominations:
Not much of a buck, but the picture was taken in a backyard in Cary.
I'll take it. Some more nominations for BOTW: Unplugged, the weekly celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, have come in. But I could use a few more to build the stockpile up again. Send nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
