Stray Casts will intelligently report and observe, hopefully with a touch of wit, on daily occurrences, reports and releases related to Chicago-area outdoors from bucks to bass to birds to bugs

Buck of the Week: Bears break buck

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Marcus Benesch photographed this buck on the Sunday before the Bears destroyed the Eagles on Monday night football.


The River Grove man photographed it at Evans Field near Elmwood Park.

He e-mailed:

``No Bears game, so took the dog for a walk and ran into this big guy. In this urban area, seeing a buck like this is something to mention.''

I agree wholeheartedly.

I also agree it is amazing how much stuff you can do on a fall Sunday afternoon when the Bears aren't playing or are playing on a Monday night.

E-mail BOTW submissions for BOTW: Unplugged, the weekly celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, to I run them most Sundays on the outdoors page of the Sun-Times.
