48 inch Musky on Lake Evergreen, McLean County, IL.  Caught on a black tandem blade spinnerbait. Ron Thein Ashleys first bow hunt! Her and her dad went out, and at 615pm, she saw the deer come in view.  She was using her grandpas cross bow. She suffered major nerve damage at birth, she finally got her liscense this summer.  She saw the deer, and was trying to keep calm, she asked dad if she could shoot.  When dad said yes she was already aiming behind the front shoulder.  After a double lung shot the spike buck ran fifty yards and piled up.  Ashley was so excited and dad couldnt believe what just happened!  By far my husbands most memoriable hunt and the first of many with Ashley. Ashley Sheldon My name is Kyle Dunn, I am a very blessed 21 year old from Lake County Illinois. I started deer hunting when I was 12 years old with my bow. The first buck I shot is on the left which is an 11 pointer, scoring around 130. My second buck was the middle buck which scored around 145 and my third buck was the buck on the right just a nice wide 5 pointer. All of these bucks are very nice bucks. I am very blessed and fortunate to have killed these bucks with the help of my dad Marc.
For the middle front buck I shot him last year on October 16, 2012. This deer is a 13 pointer, he scored 179 3/8’  with a spread of 22” and dressed out at 235 pounds. He is the biggest deer I have ever taken in my life, I am still in awe today every time I look at him on my wall and I will never forget one of the best moments in my life when I took this deer and claimed him mine. 
Kyle Dunn Tony Velada caught this largemouth bass in shallow water on Lake Sedgewick in Orland Park, Illinois from a kayak. He was using a medium action baitcasting rig with a chartreuse spinnerbait.
