It was a good weekend of deer hunting for Jonas Gregory, 13, and his 9-year-old sister Magnolia “Maggie” Gregory.

“Jonas shot his first buck while Magnolia got her first deer ever!” Rick Azzaro emailed.

They were hunting in Schuyler County during Illinois’ second firearm deer season and earned their Buck of the Week honors.

Illinois’ second fiream season ended Sunday, Dec. 6. When the Illinois Department of Natural Resources releases its harvest figures for the two firearm seasons, I will post here at https://chicago.suntimes.com/outdoors as quickly as possible.

BOTW, the celebration of hunting big bucks and their stories (the stories matter as this one shows) around Chicago outdoors, runs Wednesdays in the paper Sun-Times during the season. The online posting here at https://chicago.suntimes.com/outdoors goes up at varied days of the week, depending on what is going on the wide world of the outdoors. This year there is a lot going on.
