Buck of the Week: 14-pointer makes point

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I was beginning to worry that something was wrong. I had not received Buck of the Week stories--until a few days ago when they started coming big time, or such that be big tine (sorry, puns and word play are deer to me).


The photo above is not a buck taken by a hunter, but by a vehicle near Mokena.

What a massive 14-pointer.

Carl Harris, who sent the photo, said, ``Hope I see one like this in a couple of weeks.''

That's when the first firearm season opens in Illinois on Friday, Nov. 19.

BTW, e-mail BOTW photos to

BOTW stories and photos run on the outdoors page of the Sun-Times on Wednesdays from November into January, or about then.

BOTW: Unplugged, the celebration of the live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, runs on the Sun-Times outdoors page on Sundays from about the first in velvet until I run out of good photos some time in the winter.

I find a great deal of satisfaction in reading the stories and seeing the photos.
