Big Bucks


By WSIL Sports

WSIL--The second firearm deer season in Illinois gets underway Friday.

We've had some incredible bucks taken here in southern Illinois, from the first firearms season as well as with a bow.

Randy Shultz is actually from Manasses, Virginia. He took a 12 pointer with a bow in Jefferson County. Randy was hunting with the River to River outfitters and took his fifth pope and young buck in as many years.

12-year old Jaden Winsor of Marion got a 17-point buck in Union county with a shotgun on the first day of the first firearms season.

Johnston City's Travis Cockburn bagged a monster buck with a bow Sunday in Williamson County. It was estimated at 250 pounds and had 30 scoreable points.
