This just in from Deer & Deer Hunting contributor Don Higgins. Don was hunting in Illinois.
“Well, The Lord keeps sending blessings my way! I shot this 176-inch 6 year old 6×6 buck on Friday evening on video. I have watched this buck grow up on my farm since he was a 2 year old. I passed dozens of shooting opportunities at him for 4 years and have most of those on video. I also have hundreds of trail camera photos and 3 complete sets of shed antlers from him. Had good friends Kevin Boyer, Al Foster, Kyle Heuerman and Lee Mitchell with me today when we found him. There will be bigger bucks killed this fall but very few will have the kind of history I have with this old warrior.”
