The Illinois archery season is not even one month old but the stories coming out of this true trophy state are already astonishing. Cold temps have kept the deer on their feet since early October, and with the breeding season just about to begin, who knows what could come out of this state yet!
For Illinois hunter, Nate Webster, it would just take 2 days into the Illinois season before he would bag this 'once in a lifetime' buck. Hunting in Moultrie County, the 32 year old native took this massive 28 point buck while hunting from the ground!
Although unofficially measured at this time, veteran measurer, Tim Walmsley, says that the incredible buck could easily score 230 inches or larger! Continuing that the buck is likely a basic 10 or 11 pointer with roughly 40-50 inches of abnormal points!
Certainly an impressive view!
Bowhunting.Com would like to congratulate hunter, Nate Webster, and his High Country Iron Mace bow on this accomplishment of a lifetime. What a whitetail! Congrats Nate!
