Mick Mullady made his first deer a good one: an 8-point buck weighing 180 pounds. The Kankakee freshman hunted with brother Zach (rear) on Friday.

The sons of guide Matt Mullady and grandsons of Illinois Outdoor Hall of Famer Ed Mullady watched the buck bed down 50 yards away. Zach moved it with a grunt call, and Mick finished it on a perfect chest shot with Rage broadheads shot from his Mission Riot bow.

‘‘An 8-point for my first deer isn’t too bad,’’ Mick said.

It’s a perfect way to start Buck of the Week, the celebration of big bucks taken by hunters, this fall. Send nominations by Facebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter
