I suppose we still need to check in, so I will start this thread.

Where is everyone hunting? I expect to have a solid year. I will be hunting 3 new public properties here in Illinois that have never been hunted before. One of these I had to draw in a lottery where my odds were 4% of getting my 1st choice. I've already scouted it twice and have 3 game cams set. I am taking off 3 weeks vacation during November.

On top of this I drew the best public land firearm permit in the state. But I'll only get to usse it if I don't fill my 2 tags during the archery season.

Hunting Southeast MN for the full bow season, should get around two to three weeks worth of time in for bow this year. This is our private 150 acres that I will be hunting on.

Maybe the rookies will end up better contributors. Last 2 years I passed on everything waiting for a toad and went home empty-handed. Doubt it will happen this year. Will be hunting 3 never before hunted properties and the bucks are conditioned. Last time I hunted one like this I scored a 141" October 17th. The big ones were moving all of October during daylight.
