Slug It Out in Illinois

Neil Sanders is waiting out a giant, and hopes his patience is rewarded on this classic whitetail slugfest.

There's little doubt that Illinois is a deer hunter's paradise. Neil Sanders is waiting out a giant with his trusty Thompson-Center slug gun. He knows the potential of this area and is confident they will come into slug range.

This is the kind of place that will offer a real trophy to patient hunters, and Neil has demonstrated that by holding off on his first mature buck. Of course, one also runs the risk of passing on your best opportunity in hindsight, but Neil isn't looking back.

He's hunting with Golden Triangle Whitetail, and their success ratio has boosted his confidence. See if his patience is rewarded on this classic whitetail slugfest.
