If you could only hunt 5 days this year in Illinois, what 5 days would you pick? I want to make sure they're chasing, but not in lock down. That said, what 5 day date range would you pick?

When you find out, let me know. But, best guess for chasing & seeking is anytime from Oct 31 - November 11 give or take five days. Ha ha.

Sorry for sounding like (being) a smart a$$.

Personally, I think anywhere from the 5th to the 18th is good, but I think weather also has a lot to play in it as well.

That could be perfect. Or it could be 80 in the shade and nothing is moving. If you don't like the weather in Illinois, just wait a minute! If you have to plan this far ahead, you picked the right time frame. Cross your fingers.

Seems to be pretty standard.
