Horns Everywhere: The Drop-Tine Buck From Illinois That You Can’t Hunt

It’s the bane of hunters everywhere that we see deer in places that we can’t access, and when you see a drop-tine buck like this you can only dream.

There are forest preserves, state and national parks, and certainly private land that just does not allow deer hunting.

In those cases we have to tighten our bootstraps, suck it up, and grab the camera instead.

Here’s a rack that dreams are made of.

Forest preserves can be public and they can be private. Hopefully this is a publicly accessed preserved so people can enjoy the perks of at least seeing a trophy whitetail like this one.

Watching that deer scratch his ear with his hind leg like a dog was fun, but there’s no taking your eyes off of that set of antlers!

That ‘moose’ had drop-tines forward and backward. I thought I could see about 16-17 points, and I think it was more!

How many points can you count on that wall-hanger?
