The rut obviously happened, but I think alot of the classic chasing happened behind the cover of cornstalks.
Same here in the north part of the state. The crops where in until mid November. This year the crops should be out by mid October, the bow hunting will be awesome...

Shot a nice buck in IL on Nov 14th last year that was heavy into the searching phase. I'll be back about the same time this year. That last week right before shotgun season always seems to be a good one for me.
