Buck of the Week: Unplugged in Morton Grove

SHARE Buck of the Week: Unplugged in Morton Grove

David Lehman caught several big bucks, including this one, along the North Branch Bike Trail just south of Dempster in Morton Grove.

“They were running all round grunting and groaning like there was no tomorrow,” he emailed.

That is a good description of some activity and general loss of common sense in bucks associated with the rut.

BOTW: Unplugged, the celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, runs on the Sun-Times outdoors page on Sundays, as warranted.

There are a multitude of ways to send nominations of BOTW: Unplugged: on Facebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or email (straycasts@sbcglobal.net).
