Buck of the Week: Early 9-pointer

SHARE Buck of the Week: Early 9-pointer

Justin Kelm of Lockport arrowed an “awesome early season 9-pointer” on theafternoon of Oct. 6 after a cold front pushed through.

Kelm said the 250-pound buck was already pushing a doe. I found that part interesting that early.

The rut will be peaking and there will be a lot more of that over the next couple weeks.

BOTW, the celebration of big bucks taken by hunters around Chicago outdoors, began last week, a bit early this fall. Send nominations on Facebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or email (straycasts@sbcglobal.net).
