"Catch Of The Week" For Episode 3 - 1/30 & 1/31/21


Episode 3 - 1/30 & 1/31/21


This week's COTW comes to us from Jonathan Roberson, of Clinton!


Jonathan tells us the story of this beautiful buck he calls "G2."  He took this bad boy with a crossbow in November 2020....on his wife's birthday!!



From Jonathan: "I shot this buck I called G2 on the afternoon of November 23rd. It was my wife's birthday and I promised I would take her out to eat after the hunt. I told her, even if I kill G2 I will leave and take you out and retrieve him later. Well at 4:31 he made his appearance and I was blessed to arrow him at 9 yards with my crossbow. I immediately called her and told her I shot my target buck. She was so excited for me, but I made good on my promise. I left the blind, picked her up and took her out to eat for her birthday. 3 hours later I began the track of G2- I have never seen a blood trail as good as this one. I followed it around 180 yards and it led me to my prize! A mature Illinois whitetail on the ground!"


We'll hear him tell the story this week on "Central Illinois Outdoors!"

This Week's "Catch of the Week"


presented by:  _______


Logan (6) set out on a mission to catch his first ever trout in early December 2020.  Mission Accomplished!!!  He hit Weldon Springs State Park near Clinton on a warmer weekend morning, and was able to reel in this nice rainbow!  He was using orange trout nuggets under a bobber, and hopes this is the first of many! 


Nice catch, bud!  - JW
