A Big Illinois Non-Typical

Wed, October 22, 2014

I love this time of year.  As late October bleeds into early and mid November, I receive emails and texts of big bucks.  Texts like these are what make me get up and hunt for a couple hours before work once the time changes.  It lets me know that somebody is having success and if I have an opportunity to hunt I better take advantage of it.

Today I received a text from a friend in Connecticut.  The deer he sent me a picture of is said to be from Clark County, Illinois and will score over 220 inches.  What a bowkill!  Congrats to the hunter.  If anybody has more information about this buck, please update me in the comment section and I will add it to the story.


Awesome buck…..And no tough-guy non-smiling hunter:)

That is a big boy, but being from Clark County doesn’t surprise me either, it’s been a while but a buddy took me hunting over there one weekend several years ago. Seen some pretty nice deer, didn’t get one though. Saw some rubs on some really big trees that you knew had to be from really really big boys. Would love to get back over there hunting again. Lots of coyotes they would follow you out of the stand back to the truck.

Sure is from Clark County.  Knowing the hunter (Adam Crumrin), the best part about this buck is he put in the work, time, patience, and management to allow this deer to reach it’s potential. To harvest a deer after all that, of this caliber, is the ultimate deer manager’s goal! He is on the show Team 200, along with Adam Hays.  I believe he had named this buck “Elvis” and been hunting him for 3 years.  You might check out the Team 200TV Facebook page for any more information, Darin.

What a beast!  It seems like I have already seen more big bucks taken so far this season than all of last year, pretty awesome to see.
