Tony Matutis nominated his son Mike, a first responder from Midlothian, for his biggest buck, shot in the second firearm season in Iroquois County.
“He has been hunting with me since he was 8 years old,’’ Tony emailed. “Shot his first deer when he was 11 and now he’s 32.’’
BOTW, the celebration of good deer stories and big bucks around Chicago outdoors, runs Wednesdays on the Sun-Times’ outdoors page as warranted. Send nominations by Facebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
