buck OF THE WEEK
John Kalady, a 14-year-old from Schaumburg, made his first antlered buck memorable near Savanna. He was hunting with Fred Hebeler (left) on a trip his dad, Gus, bought at a National Wild Turkey Federation banquet.
‘‘The second hour on stand, a small six meandered out, and my son asked for me to pass him the 20-gauge Browning A5,’’ Gus Kalady emailed. ‘‘I told him, ‘No, this deer is too young. Let him grow up.’ He replied, ‘No, Dad, the deer behind him,’ which I did not even see.’’
John Kalady made a perfect shot and made his father proud.
