Story: I was hunting on family farm land for the first time. It was the last five minutes of daylight with 20 mph winds in my face @ 16 degrees. I could not feel my feet or hands and almost gave up, but out he comes. I took the shot at 65 yards. It seemed like slow motion. He did a total flip and never got back up. BIG BUCK DOWN my first ILLINOIS GIANT. I will never forget that day!
