The Illinois Deer and Turkey Classic is being held this weekend in Bloomington, Illinois. Amongst its hundreds of booths selling everything from gear to actual hunts, and thousands of visitors, one will be able to gaze upon what we think is the coolest looking buck you may ever see.
Bowhunter, Chris Kiernan, took this giant non-typical buck on the first day of November, 2009, while hunting Kendall County. The buck totes 37 points!
Although the MONSTER buck has been officially scored by a Pope and Young scorer, it will still have to wait until March, 2011, before it can be scored again by an entire panel of scorers. This is not typical for the club to do unless an animal reaches such high score. At 268 1/8 inches, we understand.
Chris’s buck will be on display at the Elite Archery booth as well as the main "Big Buck" exhibit which features many of the largest whitetail taken in Illinois throughout 2009 and previous seasons.
We invite any and all to come see Chris’s mount and take the time to visit us, at the Bowhunting.Com booth. We’ll have shirts and hats for sale as well as some great prizes to give away! The Illinois Deer and Turkey classic runs this weekend only, the 26-28th of February.
