Estaban Uriostigue worked to arrow “The Bull,” one of the great bucks of the fall, in eastern Kankakee County.
“Early on it was really dry so we told him to hunt by the pond,” Cindy Gustafson emailed. “One day he was walking out there–it had started raining–and he almost ran into `The Bull.’ They startled each other. Over the next few weeks, he would always see him in the same spot, so he moved the tree stand, tucked it into the tree right next to the trail. The next time he went out, there was his deer. He got a good shot at about 25 yards.”
The 25-pointer weighed 225 pounds field dressed and gross scored 213 5/8.
