Mike Howley sent this from Hickory Hills for Buck of the Week: Unplugged.
Sitting at my kitchen table on a Saturday morning one month ago we saw this. He stayed in our yard for over three hours periodically eating leaves and laying down on our grass.
I would about flip if a buck like that hung out in my yard.
E-mail nominations for BOTW: Unplugged, the weekly celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, to email@example.com.
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 Sunday during the season.
