Default Illinois Hunters...

Anybody got any deer down? I just shot my first doe for the season...been waiting for that nice buck to walk by though. Only seen a little 6 point so far. Sorry I didn't even take any pics of the doe but she was prolly around 130. I will get the exact weight when I get my meat back.

I stuck a button on sunday afternoon. So many deer around Rockford where I hunt, Looked like he got tagged by a car or somthing, so I took him. The steaks'll be good.

Passed ona forky on sat, he was beggen to get whacked, but it was his lucky day. I know that there are bigger bucks around even if we have not seen them yet. We have also spotted a 6 and a nice 8 on the property. The corn was still up and there are plenty of does around. It should start to get good in the upcoming weeks. We are hunting Jodavies...

Wish I had the time to get out. I'll be hunting the Michigan gun opener the 15th of November then back in Illiinois to hunt the shotgun opener down by Carbondale. Probably head over to Kankakee State Park in a couple weeks and do some pheasant hunting and maybe stick around in the afternoon and see if I can stick a deer.

I have been seeing a ton of deer. I have taken a doe and nice 10, my boy killed a spike. I am hunting Jefferson Co and I think what has been helping me is that we do not have any corn around us, the deer are in the timber eating acorns.
