Thats a brute. I have 200 acres in West-Central Illinois and I'm going to hit it hard this weekend. I haven't even been out yet. I got really sick during my antelope hunt the first week of October (unbelievable wind and then bitter cold). just completed my third round of antibiotics; finally feeling better. Anyway, EHD hit my area extremely bad. We have counted 17 dead deer this far but looks like a frost will come with this weekends cold weather and kill the midges that spread this horrible disease. Trail cams haven't picked up any bruisers yet but that's typical until the rut kicks in.
Congrats on a pig of a deer what did it weight
