My dad shot a bull moose a couple of years ago at about 400yds. Thought it was a cow and when we got up on it we noticed it had a little spike on one side and it had shed the other side already and it was Nov 1. Yes we talked to the warden and he cleared us as ok due to the weird circumstance.

A buddy of mine saw a half racked buck about mid January.
That's about normal time for Northern IL, but if they are dropping early, I wonder if it had anything to do with last summer's drought.

I think that the 3 week cold spell we had in December had something to do with it.
