Nov_1_07_3 Rod Kloeckner of the Bellville News-Democrat wrote this great story about the Joel Eggers buck that was arrowed in Randolph Co, IL on Oct. 23. Go read it and check out the fantastic field photo of Joel with his monster.

Three things from Rod’s story jumped out: Joel is 22 years old—the young guns are kicking ass this season, that’s great for hunting; the energetic Joel bowhunts hard every day after work—all that time in the tree is how you get the big ones; finally, Joel’s giant officially scored 211 gross and 198 1/8 before 60-day drying—no doubt in my mind that will be the biggest TYPICAL shot in North America in 2007.

Way to go Joel and thanks Rod for the link.
