Just got this picture from a friend I grew up with in Illinois. He shot this deer on his family farm yesterday. The same farm I shot my first deer on when I was a kid. The deer management his family and neighboring families are doing is really paying off. He is a 9 point and was aged at 7 1/2! His field dressed weight was 260#. I am really happy for him. He lives and breathes deer hunting and deer management. I just thought you guys may like seeing a big Midwestern deer.
Thanks for looking, John

They have been watching this guy for a few years from my understanding. He said it had a few 8 inch mass measurements! I'm not usually one to brag up someone else's deer but this one had my jaw dropping. I NEVER saw deer like this growing up around there.

redchevy, this was a native deer. Been living in soybean and cornfields its entire life. I understand the question though! So yes, free range.

I lived in the Super Boony Chicago Metro area once upon a time in the mid 70's for a job with a future that looked good at the time, but I don't do Office Politics well and escaped back to Texas ASAP...OTOH THAT critter coud make me reconsider....but only 'iffen I could never have to live any where up north. Still got my FBI card that was/is required in Cook County to buy ammo and show to use a public range, or just look at a firearm of any kind.

What a monster Indeed....
