Deer season is underway in the Land of Lincoln, and an outdoorsman posted this video of a GIANT buck only yesterday roaming the fields in Illinois. Could this be the biggest buck currently in Illinois?

I can honestly say I don't think I have ever seen a buck like that before, and what is really cool to me about this YouTube video from Cedar Ridge Whitetails LLC is that it was posted on October 6th, 2021 just yesterday! So this giant is currently out there roaming around the Land of Lincoln, which is exciting and also terrifying because I'd much rather know that some bow hunter gets to claim this beast for their wall as opposed to me having to go out truck shopping for a new truck after accidentally hitting this thing on the highway.

If you stick around to watch the entire about minute-long video towards the very end you get a surprise when the camera zooms back out and you see this big buck is only a couple yards away from another large buck with giant antlers. It is hard to tell where this video was shot, and the YouTube channel doesn't give any sort of description about where they are located in Illinois except for the fact that they are located in Southern Illinois, which for someone like me who grew up in Chicago means anything south of I-80!

If you are a hunter here in the Tri-States we would love to see the videos of the animals you find while you are out! Reach out to us through the KICK-FM website, App, or Facebook page.

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
