Hey guys my buddy was at BlueRidge Backwoods(a bow shop in Monticello,IL) this morning and a guy brought in a buck that green scored 179 ans something. It field dressed at 305lbs., my buddy said it was huge and the sad thing was that it is only the 2nd largest taken out of there year, there has been a bigger one taken!!

It's a LOT harder to keep track of impressive Illinois bowkills this season with the elimination of all the check-in stations! Still, I know of some awesome bucks that have already been tagged! Here is the pic of the 240" 28 pointer from north Mclean county.
