Archery Trip To Illinois Might Just Happen

Well folks, I am so pumped, yesterday some friends decide to go on a archery trip to Illinois. We applied for a Prairie State archery deer hunting permit. I have always wanted to go on a big time deer hunt and it looks like this could be the year that dream becomes a reality.

Archery Trip To Illinois

We are planning to go on our archery trip to Illinois in late October to early November. Right in the heart of big buck country. I have always wanted to hunt in Illinois, where the chances of getting a world class whitetail are very good. It’s a lottery to get drawn for so hopefully we will get drawn.

If you are wondering why I am so pumped up about hunting in Illinois check out this video, and if you are a deer hunter you will understand.I have already made my self a hunting equipment checklist and I just ordered a new bow that should be here tomorrow. The bow that I have been using for years has been a great one, but it is time for an upgrade. I have never shot a carbon arrow and I just can’t wait to start practicing with my new PSE Stinger. I bought it on-line at huntersfriend.com. They have ready to hunt bow packages that come set up and paper tuned and ready to hunt right out of the package. I just don’t have a lot of spare time, so this is a great deal for someone who doesn’t have the time to get a bow tuned and set up properly. Of course I will need to get in a lot of practice between now and hunting season, which I plan on doing. If you are looking for a good deal on a bow package you can check them out at huntersfriend.com or click Hunters Friend, or call 1-877-410-7811.

A while back I decided to set a deer hunting goal for my self, of harvesting a Pope and Young buck with my bow. Bow hunting in Illinois just might help me achieve that goal. They have some real trophy whitetails there and I just might get a bruiser, you never know. I have been deer hunting twenty seven years and have never been hunting outside of the great state of Georgia. I have taken some real nice bucks in Georgia, but I really hope to get the chance to go bow hunting in Illinois. I am pumped up just thinking about it.

 

Also I will be moving to Kentucky real soon and I here there is some great hunting there also. I am looking forward to hunting in some of these states that I have only read about and seen on television. I here there is a lot of corn up that way. I bet those tenderloins taste real good. Not to mention those world class  racks.

 

Kudzu Buck

This kudzu buck died when he got tangled in kudzu.

Have you ever seen a kudzu buck?

Kudzu Buck Dead

The deer really like kudzu. If you like deer hunting big bucks you may like this story.

Just the other day my father in law Bill called me and said he had found a photo copy of a picture he had taken on his hunting property. Right in his own back yard. He said he thought this would be a great story for us. There have been several big bucks taken deer hunting on this property. His grandson had told him he thought he heard two big bucks fighting back there. It’s several acres back there with part of it being a kudzu field. I’ve been deer hunting back there and it just looks like there would be some big bucks living there. Bill went to see what the commotion was back there that his grandson had heard. It’s pretty thick back there. As Bill was walking down through there, he spotted a deer leg. Then he spotted the deer. In all his years of deer hunting he hadn’t seen anything quite like this. It was a trophy buck that had gotten his rack entangled in the kudzu. He must have freaked out and broke his own neck trying to get loose. It was just a freak accident. Bill went and got his camera and took some pictures. He can’t find the original pictures or negatives but he did find a photo copy. The quality isn’t very good. If he locates the original photos I’ll update this post. It’s like when two bucks get locked up and can’t get apart. Except it’s just one kudzu buck. Bill eventually cut the buck out of the kudzu and cut off the antlers. If you are like me, and like deer hunting big bucks, you sure hate to see a big buck die like this, especially if it’s one you are hunting in your own backyard.
