Deer hunting is exciting and especially so when you’re trying to kill your first trophy whitetail. Back in the 1980s, I remember opening the pages of a hunting magazine and reading about The Magic Triangle in Illinois. My eyes lit up as I read about a triangle of counties in west-central Illinois that were producing quantities of some of the highest scoring deer in North America. As you probably have, I could imagine myself posing with one of these magnificent animals.
