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.
Don't know if you found any information on this, but I don't know of a public bowhunt only that is 20000. I know of a resident only bow hunting only call Buckhorn Unit. Checkout Illinos DNR website. They have a list of all public areas.
As the allure of hunting big whitetails becomes more and more a passion for many, we are finding that the recent (historically speaking) popularity of hunting deer from a tree stand is becoming the way to do it. I'll make no statement either for or against that technique here. This will be simply an essay on what I feel are some outstanding rifles for tree stand use.
Before we go even one more step, let's all remember that safety is first and foremost for anyone wanting to hunt...
