Chris Kiernan, who arrowed what is one of the all-time nontypical whitetails shot in Illinois, was charged Friday with a 41-count criminal complaint, according to the Morris Daily Herald.
Among the complaints is that the Minooka man poached his 36-point buck in 2009 on Material Service Corporation property near Morris.
I had heard this was coming, but that doesn't make it any easier.
It was a tremendous deer.
And now it is a blackeye for hunters, and especially for hunters of trophy whitetails.
I opted not to run a photo of the deer and Kiernan, but may rethink that in a follow up.
