Default Hunt of My lifetime!!!!

After thinking that I would never have the chance to hunt big buck country, it is finally going to happen!!! This year I will be going to Fayette County Il. for the rut!! Let me know how close you all are and we might be able to hook up. I know that Oddtodd is close because I am hunting with him. If you have any pics of deer from that area please post them.

Nothing like hunting in the midwest! You'll love it, and it will spoil you bro! I'm not sure if those guys really know how good they have it until they have to hunt somewhere else for a while, lol!

Bow baby! Is there anything else? We need to get something to eat when I get up there dude. I will be with Todd and his cousin and I think you guys have gotten together before so that could be something we could work out.

Illinois is a great place to bow hunt, even in area's that don't have heavy woods cover. My first year out I shot 3 deer from the same tree line in between corn and bean fields. I have never Killed anything impressive as far as big bucks go, but I have seen many while not hunting.

I hunted in Illinois in 2006 and got a 130" 8 pt. I really rushed the shot because my hunt was getting cut short due to work stuff back home, so I took the first nice buck to walk by. The guy who owned the place where I hunted had taken two bucks in the 180's in the past few years.

Here is my 2006 Illinois bowkill. He is not huge, but it was a decent one for a bow. It scored 130 and had a 20" inside spread.



In this pic, my deer is the one on the far right.
