I hunt Johnson/Union Co. most of the time! But since I live in GA, I can't get there very often! Man, I envy you guys who are close, 'cause if I did I'd be hunting Oct. 1 too. Good luck to all!

Hunt Wayne, Clay and Marion. More pumped up than in the past. Been watching a buck that should score 200+. I always see good deer butwhen an exceptional 1 comes into the picture it tends to get a person excited!

I hunt public land in Kankakee county.

Actually it's 7 days and a wake-up, and I can't wait either! I've been boucin' off the walls for the last 5 or 6 weeks.Went out clearing shooting lanes this past saturday and seen so much sign I can't believe it! Tracks, poop and even a couple small rubs. I've been hunting the same woods for 13 or 14 years now and I'm finally getting to know them pretty good. Or maybe I'm just finally learning what to look for. I'll definetly be out opening day. If I get one you'll all know.

I'm hoping to join the nanny-whackers' club. At least twice.
