Photo of the Day

sky's buck

Friday, November 25

Sky Pollitt shot this Peoria County 8-point buck on the opening evening of the Illinois firearm season. Writes her boyfriend, David Koehler, "After shooting at another nice buck in the morning on opening day, and having a small tree deflect the shot she was heartbroken. She thought she would not get another awesome chance like that! Then in the evening on the same day she was preparing to shoot a doe and this buck stepped out at about fifty yards. She took one shot and dropped him in his tracks!"
