Have you heard about a HUGE buck out of Illinois referred to as “Rockstar”?  What a monster…in a good way!  Let’s just say he far exceeded 160 inches!

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

“We had him on trail camera last year and were guessing he was a 160-inch 3-year-old,” Turbyfill said. “We knew he had major potential and had told ourselves that if we had the opportunity last year that we’d let him grow. But we were honestly afraid that if he did come by that he may be hard to pass. Luckily, we never faced that decision last year.

“We didn’t have him on trail camera this year at all and were so disappointed by that,” Turbyfill continued. “But things escalated quickly two days before gun season when he came by me at 35 yards chasing a doe. I couldn’t get a clear shot at him that day, but I recognized him.”
