Greg Regalado nominated his buddy, Steve Wagner of Streamwood, for this 11-point buck he arrowed in late October in Jo Daviess County.

“With 15 minutes of shooting light left, Steve could hear this guy working a scrape around the corner from his stand and was able to made a 30-yard shot to bring him down once he came his way,’’ Regalado emailed.

It weighed 190 pounds dressed and the rack scored 155 3/8 inches.
