Sweet! Lots of big deer coming from that area these days. Rolling hills, and some pretty rugged stuff actually. What outfitter are you with?

Awesome, I think you had mentioned this on our team thread maybe? Either way, sounds like a great time. 4000 is a dandy piece of ground. How much is timbered do you know?

I don't know how much is timbered, I know they have alot of cornfields and bean fields. The guidesaid most the best places he has people set stands are about 15 to 20 feet from the edges of the fields in the timber.

Schuyler county is a winner. My buddy has about 400 acres there. They shot a 142", a 152", and a 170"+ this year. He said it was an off year! [&:] Unfortunately I can't hunt it because its corporation land.


I too have booked a hunt for Illinois this year...I'll be up there the last week of October.
