I once had a dog that liked to dig in the trash when I wasn't around. I rehabilitated him by putting a couple mouse traps on top of the trash. I came home one day to find the traps sprung and the dog cowering in the corner. He lived about 12 years after that and never stuck his nose in a trash can again.
In another case, when I was a kid the neighbor's dog used to come over at night and chew on our rabbits' feet through the cage. Dad rehabilitated him with a load of 7-1/2 birdshot in his hindquarters -- the dog was always polite after that and never came over without permission.
Yet somehow I think Illinois would probably have some sort of PETA-approved, 12-step program to convince rogue wildlife to leave people alone.

Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
