I am hearing discussion of a public area in central Illinois that is archery only. It supposedly consists of 20000 acres. Does anyone know of a public land area that fits this description. Any information would be appreciated.

OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
