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: Opening hopes and dreams

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

David Green caught this buck on trail cam in Will County to earn BOTW honors, I thought an apt one with the first firearm deer season opening Friday in Illinois.

''Got him on a trail camera, now I'm hoping to get him on the ground,'' the Crete man e-mailed.

That's what some 200,000-plus of us are thinking this week. I used it as the lead to my column about Illinois' first firearm deer season Friday through Sunday.

E-mail nominations for BOTW, the weekly celebration of big bucks taken by hunters around Chicago outdoors Wednesdays on the Sun-Times outdoors page, to straycasts@sbcglobal.net.
