On Monday, Nov. 14 Jason Pickerill harvested a buck of a lifetime in Hancock County, Illinois. After sitting all day Saturday and Sunday to no avail, Jason spotted this bruiser around 9:40 Monday morning. The buck walked in slowly from around 45 yards as Jason placed his pin on its chest and patiently counted each yard of the buck¹s approach.
Finally, when the huge deer presented a slightly quartering away shot at 16 yards, Jason released an arrow from his Bear Anarchy bow and claimed the magnificent whitetail. Back at camp, Jason put a tape measure to the rack and learned that it grossed more than 175 inches on the Boone and Crockett scoring system, making him a true Illinois monster.
From everyone here at Deer & Deer Hunting, congratulations, Jason!
