The long range forecast shows the temps in SE Illinois to have a high in the mid 50's on this coming Saturday with a low around 30!!
Saturday will be the start of a week long bowhunt for me - my first time in the Midwest ever!
I do admit to some "cold fear" but I hope the lower temps have a few rut crazed bucks moving about!
I will be on weather watch all week.
The shame of this trip is that I am solo - early on I had quite a few hunters that wanted to go but for one reason or another, they were all weeded out.
Nevertheless - I will be there, Lord willing!!
Come on Saturday!!
